In response to the OrCAD and Allegro 16.5 product release, and the growing demand for easy to use and affordable Signal Integrity solutions such as OrCAD PCB SI, TeamOrCAD, TeamAllegro and Signal Integrity expert Robert Hanson will join forces the week of June 20 in Chelmsford, MA.Cadence has opened up their training facilities to Robert Hanson to teach his popular SI/PI/EMC training courses. On June 20-24, engineers and PCB designers of all levels of high speed design experience have the opportunity to increase their expertise in signal integrity, power integrity, and EMI/EMC in Chelmsford. Robert offers his courses either as a daily module or as a multi-day package. At the time of this posting, room is still available for the Chelmsford event. To learn more about this event and how to register, see the event listing.TeamAllegro Application Engineer, Shawn Nikoukary sat in on a Robert Hanson seminar last November and had this to say about the event:
"I have attended SI classes before, but I have to say that Robert’s class was by far the most useful of them all. Robert did a great job to start from the basics and transition to very advanced topics with examples and real life scenarios. He had prepared multiple handouts and reading materials that helped us understand the topic more clearly; he even brought boards and electrical samples to show us the actual products. Robert himself is a very knowledgeable instructor and can convey and articulate the subject very clearly and with great enthusiasm."
If you are a new to signal integrity or like Shawn, a seasoned veteran of high speed PCB design, we encourage you to quickly sign up for this event in Chelmsford.Attendees of the event will also be able to see demonstrations of how Cadence tools such as OrCAD PCB SI and Allegro PCB SI can be used to perform analysis to address the topics on which Robert will teach. SI tools purchased from Cadence or Cadence Channel Partners within 60 days of the seminar will be made available at a discount to seminar attendees. Details can be obtained from your local Cadence field representative.Let us know your experiences with Robert Hanson seminars.TeamAllegro
I just attended Robert’s class this week today and feel it is very much useful for either junior or senior SI engineers. This course covers from fundamentals to the advanced design methodologies. During the courses, Robert has used many practical design cases to help the students to understand what the SI issues are and how to make the right design in real world. Experience-wide and knowledge-wide, Robert is really the SI expert and the instructor.
