Real Time With…I-Connect007: The App Notes and Fab Notes Roundtable



Most of our readers are familiar with our Real Time With... video program. For over a decade, our production teams have been a staple at trade shows and conferences around the world, from San Diego to Shanghai, doing on-camera interviews with the industry’s top technologists, managers, and executives. 

Now, we've decided to shake things up a bit. Real Time With…I-Connect007 has turned the cameras around to focus on recent issues of our magazines. In this first installment of this new series, we invited four of our recent contributors—Dana Korf, Jen Kolar and Mark Thompson of Monsoon Solutions, and Kelly Dack—to review the June and August issues of Design007 Magazine, which covered app notes and fab notes, respectively.

In this wide-ranging roundtable, we discuss some of the ongoing challenges related to design data and why communication can preclude many of these problems.

Managing Footprints With Integrated EDA Tools

02/23/2021 | Matt Walsh, Siemens Digital Industries Software
Electronics companies are always under great pressure to continually grow and innovate. In addition to navigating ever-accelerating design cycles, they must also address and overcome generational complexities associated with their products, the underlying components they use, and the human capital accountable for delivering on time and on budget. Electronics firms can ill afford the time and resource inefficiencies associated with manually correcting design errors, poor library data integrity, or other inconsistencies leading to missed deadlines or even costly re-spins.

TTM’s Approach to Stackup Design: Train the Customer

01/12/2021 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
In this interview with the I-Connect007 Editorial Team, TTM’s Julie Ellis and Richard Dang drill down into stackup design, detailing some of the common stackup challenges that their customers face when designing for both prototype and volume levels, and offering advice to designers or engineers who are struggling with stackup issues. They also discuss why having too many different prepregs in a stackup can be asking for trouble, and how proper stackup design can optimize both the fabrication and assembly processes.

Cadence’s Celsius: Don’t End up Holding the Hot Potato!

12/17/2020 | Clive "Max" Maxfield, Maxfield High-Tech Consulting
I was just thinking about the party game Hot Potato. It reminded me of today’s increasingly competitive marketplace: Accurate thermal analysis must be performed, and any potential issues have to be identified and addressed as early as possible in the design cycle. Otherwise the system will run into problems, market windows will be missed, and someone will be left holding the hot potato. Trust me, you do not want to be that someone.
