If you're an IC packaging or PCB designer, there's a free one-day event just for you at the Cadence San Jose, California headquarters March 15, 2012. Coming one day after CDNLive! Silicon Valley, the event will feature product/technology roadmaps, an interactive roundtable discussion, and half-day "techtorials" on design planning and signal integrity.
The event will start with registration at 8:00 a.m. and a welcoming address at 8:45 a.m. The morning session will include roadmaps for design authoring, PCB layout and routing, signal integrity, and chip packaging. It will conclude with a roundtable discussion with senior engineering directors and architects for PCB and IC packaging products.
The afternoon session will be comprised of the two four-hour techtorials. In the design planning techtorial, Robert Jordan, senior design engineer at FreedomCAD, will share his experiences using the Allegro PCB Designer Flow Planner. This product makes it possible to capture routing intent, and it provides feedback from the routing engine, shortening design times and reducing the number of layers. Users can create abstracted interconnect data, and the tool provides a visual/spatial map (below) of the open area in relation to the data and the user's design intent.
In the other techtorial, Terry Jemberg, principal product engineer at Cadence, will teach the basics of transmission line theory, terminations, crosstalk, and PCB stack-up design. The presentation will show how PCB designers can make decisions during the layout process.
