Signal Integrity Basics: Technical Terms

By Davi Correia

Nyquist frequency, first harmonic, clock frequency, fundamental frequency, and some other intimidating terms might be thrown at you by an SI engineer. Read on to get up to speed on these and other terms you need to know.


Richardson RFPD Introduces Two New DC/DC Converter Series for Fast-switching GaN Drivers from RECOM

Richardson RFPD, Inc. announced the availability and full design support capabilities for two new series of DC/DC converters from RECOM Power, Inc. High slew-rate GaN transistors require an isolated 6V supply with high isolation voltage and low isolation capacitance. The RxxP06S and RP-xx06X series have been designed to fulfill this requirement.


XJTAG Announces DFT Assistant for Zuken CR-8000 PCB design suite

UK – Zuken® and XJTAG®, have released a plugin that will enhance Zuken’s CR-8000 with a design for test (DFT) capability improving test coverage by allowing additional design checks during schematic entry. CR-8000 is a native 3D product-centric design platform for PCB-based systems. CR-8000 directly supports architecture design, concurrent multi-board PCB design, chip/package/board co-design, and full 3D MCAD co-design.

Upcoming Webinars

Keysight Webinar

Keysight Webcast: Decoupling Capacitor Optimization for Power Integrity

Learn how to use ADS PIPro to generate Electromagnetic (EM) models that account for PCB parasitics and then use the models to optimize the decoupling capacitors for low milliohms of impedance. See an example solution with a full end-to-end circuit simulation using state-based-average models for the point of load (POL) dc to dc converters, PCB EM models, and package/die models.
