DesignCon is the largest show with a strategic focus on design. From signal integrity to power integrity to power distribution to the recent emergence of PAM-4, the knowledge gained at DesignCon is wholly unique, and unlike any other show. Sierra interviewed experts and leaders to share tips and discuss where they see our industry heading.
Below is the fourth of ten interviews from DesignCon 2016. Steve Sandler is the CEO of PICOTEST.com, a company that designs and distributes test accessories related to power system measurement. He had several excellent presentations at DesignCon, and spoke about signal integrity and power integrity, as well as target impedance and rogue waves.
Steve’s Tip of the Day
I’m very excited for gallium nitride technology. It’s the newest technology our industry has seen since silicon. It’s the first technology we’ve had in 60 years that out-performs silicon in every way, and at the same time, is extremely fast and puts a lot of pressure on PCB design and the power integrity of PCB planes.
