We’re happy to announce that Speedstack, Polar Instruments’ layer stackup design/documentation tools, can now be directly linked to Zuken’s CR-8000 Design Force and DFM Center.
You can tell when something isn’t as clear as it should be. The same questions come up time and again. You ask three experts and get three different answers. Routing differential pairs can be like that. Why? Because “it depends” – on exactly what signals those pairs are carrying and what kind of PCB you’re creating.
I’ve just returned from a whistle-stop, two week trip to South East Asia. I’d heard recently that investments in China are leading to more complex products being produced, so as someone focused on high-speed design I was interested to see for myself how this is playing out in Asia as a whole; the world’s largest PCB manufacturing region.
Do you still use Post-it Notes? Invented in 1979, this simple, yet incredibly powerful, communication mechanism is still commonly found in engineering and design departments. Despite modern electronic communication, many companies still struggle to provide a replacement for their ease-of-use and versatility.
It’s 25 years since the first FED Conference took place in Berlin back in 1993, as a gathering for the German-speaking electronic and PCB-related industry.
