PCB Designers: ASSEMBLE!
Ok, that is not as cool as Chris Evans’ Captain America in Avengers: Endgame. However, the AltiumLive 2020 Virtual Summit offers the latest tips and tricks of PCB design. The show occurs in the Americas and EMEA.
Samtec at AltiumLive? Why?
Samtec is a global manufacturer of a broad line of electronic interconnect solutions. We offer many ECAD/MCAD models to make PCB design easier.
PCB designers basically:
- Search the Samtec website for the appropriate part
- Configure the part
- Click on “Download eCAD Files”
- Click on your selection (Symbol and Footprint) or (Footprint)
- Select Format to download
If a specific file is not available, engineers can submit requests firstname.lastname@example.org. Just include a complete part number and format requires (Altium for example). Samtec generally turns these requests around in less than a day.
Istvan Novak Speaks at AltiumLive
As a Principal SI/PI Engineer at Samtec, Istvan Novak works on advanced SI/PI designs. Prior to 2018 he was a Distinguished Engineer at SUN Microsystems/Oracle. He worked on new technology development, advanced power distribution, and SI design and validation methodologies for SUN’s successful workgroup server families.
Istvan introduced the industry’s first 25 μm power-ground laminates for large rigid computer boards, and worked with component vendors to create a series of low inductance and controlled-ESR bypass capacitors.
He also served as SUN’s representative on the Copper Cable and Connector Workgroup of InfiniBand. Istvan also was engaged in the methodologies, designs and characterization of power-distribution networks from silicon to DC-DC converters.
He is a Life Fellow of the IEEE with twenty-nine patents to his name, author of two books on power integrity, teaches signal and power integrity courses, and maintains a popular SI/PI website. Istvan was named Engineer of the Year at DesignCon 2020. He will participate in the following sessions.
Day 2, 9:45 AM – 11:00 AM PDT
Panel discussion: 150 person-years of expertise in SI and PI design, simulation and measurement
Day 2, 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM PDT
SI/PI Panelists Happy Hour
We look forward to seeing you at the event!
