Handling Electro-Magnetic Compatibility, Signal and Power integrity at Board Level The “Black Magic” explained
20-03-2015 :: Ostend, Belgium

Organizer: Center for Electronics Design & Manufacturing (cEDM)

The Center for Electronics Design & Manufacturing (cEDM) mission:

To support industry by means of knowledge creation and sharing, scientifically sound methodologies and collaboration throughout the electronic supply chain, in the development and production of high quality, reliable electronic modules (PBA).

The Center for Electronics Design & Manufacturing organizes workshops on a regular basis. At these workshops Printed Board Assembly topics are presented followed by a Q&A session. The participation of our cEDM partners allows us to enlighten the topic of the day from different viewpoints in the electronic supply chain.

 
This workshop is of interest to all involved or responsible for the design, production, quality, test, supply and system integration of electronics in technological products. This workshop will take place on the 20th of March 2015 at KU Leuven Technology Campus Ostend, Zeedijk 101, Ostend, Belgium. 
 
 

Handling Electro-Magnetic Compatibility, Signal and Power integrity at Board Level

The “Black Magic” explained

 

Abstract:

The basic principles behind Signal Integrity (SI), Power Integrity (PI) and especially Electro-Magnetic compatibility (EMC) are often not well known. Achieving well SI, PI and EMC designed electronics are, therefore, often seen as “Black Magic”. However, appropriate SI, PI and EMC design methodology results in efficient and cost-effective solutions within the proposed time- and cost budget of the design project. The collaboration between cEDM and KU Leuven Technology Campus Ostend has resulted in a set of practical, hands-on SI, PI and EMC design guidelines which will be made available and explained to the participants.
Davy Pissoort, KU Leuven Technology Campus Ostend, presents the basic physical principles behind the EMC design rules at Board level. These essential EMC guidelines allow to make adequate choices early in the design process.
 
Ronny Deseine, Barco, gives an overview of the systematic Design-for-EMC process within Barco. All the elements that influence the time and effort needed to reach EMC compliance are gathered, organized and presented to the design project team. This leads to transparent communication in every design phase.
Bart Boesman, KU Leuven Technology Campus Ostend, presents a general workflow to obtain adequate Signal and Power Integrity on a Printed Board Assembly (PBA) . 
Filip Demuynck, Keysight Technologies, gives a brief overview of EDA tools for SI and PI analysis. He illustrates how these tools provide guidance to mitigate issues by adjusting the design.
