Keysight Technologies Announces Free Signal and Power Integrity Workshop

Keysight Technologies is offering a free workshop specifically designed for signal and power integrity engineers trying to accurately model their printed circuit boards (PCBs)—a task that is now more challenging given today’s ever increasing data rates. During the hands-on workshop, titled “Keysight EEsof EDA Simulation Tools for Signal Integrity and Power Integrity,” attendees will learn about new tools in ADS 2016 that can improve PCB simulation accuracy; in particular, the pure electromagnetic-simulation-based SIPro (Signal Integrity Professional) and PIPro (Power Integrity Professional). SIPro and PIPro provide a cohesive workflow within ADS for signal integrity and power integrity applications in high-speed digital board design.
