Beyond Design: PDN–Decoupling Capacitor Placement
The impact of lower core voltages and faster edge rates has pushed the frequency content of typical digital signals into the gigahertz range. Consequently, the performance of decoupling capacitors, that are required to complement the power distribution network (PDN) and curb signal induced fluctuations, must also be extended up into this range. However, rudimentary design rules, adequate for frequencies below 100MHz, may not be suitable for today's high-speed digital circuits. The symptoms of an inadequate PDN design are increased power supply noise, crosstalk and electromagnetic radiation leading to poor performance and possibly intermittent operation.















  

Kelly Dack and Mike Creeden: Are we in a PCB Design Renaissance?
Technical Editor Kelly Dack and San Diego PCB founder Mike Creeden discuss some of the trends they're seeing in the PCB design community, including greater numbers of young people becoming designers and more EEs doing design work. They also focus on IPC's training and designer certification efforts, and the need for designers to get out of the office and visit a board shop once in a while.

Mentor Graphics Webinar: Solve DDR Memory Challenges with PADS Advanced Simulation
To deploy features commonly found in modern electronic products, such as high-fidelity audio, rich graphics, high-resolution displays, and wireless interfaces, designers must work with processors and FPGAs that use high-speed, high-bandwidth DDR memory. But working with DDR interfaces poses unique design challenges. How do you know what component placement and routing are best or what constraints are needed to ensure your end products will work?


Time-Lapse Video: The IPC APEX EXPO 2017 Show in Under Seven Minutes!
During IPC APEX EXPO 2017, we at I-Connect007 had our time-lapse camera running from setup to closing. The camera was positioned high in our studio, where we conducted our RealTimewith…IPC APEX EXPO video interviews, aimed down the main aisle.


Real Time with...IPC: American Standard Circuits Strives to Define the Future of PCB Technology
