After our PCB Layout Design workshop presented by Robert Feranec, Sierra Circuits is hosting Steve Sandler’s hands-on power integrity workshop on December 3rd and 4th at the Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, CA.
Steve Sandler, an internationally recognized power expert, developed this in-depth, 2-day hands-on workshop to provide you with the fundamentals of power integrity. You’ll learn why it is important and how to design for it, measure it and troubleshoot it. This workshop teaches high-fidelity measurement, design, and simulation techniques. The combination of lecture and hands-on exercises allows attendees to explore the presented topics in real-time while being mentored by an expert in the field. The hands-on approach allows you to gain confidence in your ability to apply these skills on your own, at your workplace. You will learn to measure, optimize and troubleshoot most common power integrity related issues.
What You Will Learn
Why clean power matters and how to obtain it
How to set the power supply noise budget
What frequency you should be measuring to
How to measure each portion of the PDN (VRM, decoupling, planes, loads)
How to interpret an impedance plot and use it to optimize performance
Which specific measurements are critical for success
How to make impedance, stability, PSRR, step load, and ripple measurements
What test equipment is necessary to complete the above measurements successfully
Improve your first-pass design quality, thereby reducing board iterations
Gain a better understanding of why Power Integrity is important
