Mentor Forum for PCB is designed to bring you up to speed on all of the latest capabilities within the DxDesigner, Expedition Enterprise and HyperLynx releases. But it also provides a great opportunity to:
The seminar will present the latest releases of the PCB design solutions your company has invested in. Immediately before lunch, the 2013 Technology Leadership Awards* (TLA) will be launched. Indeed, there will be guest speakers representing winning teams from the 2012 TLA competition at some of the Forum locations. The seminar concludes with a "sneak preview" to showcase future technology and developments.
What You Will Learn
The seminar will present the latest releases of the PCB design solutions and provide insights on how to be more productive and innovative in your PCB design flow. The following releases will be discussed in detail:
Expedition Enterprise (v7.9.4)PCB designers are under constant time pressure. Using a DDR3 interface as an example, the presentation will demonstrate tips and tricks together with functionality enhancements to make life easier:
HyperLynx (v9.0) and HyperLynx DRCHyperLynx Signal and Power Integrity (v9.0) represents a big step forward with regards to simulation technology and performance, in one easy-to-use solution. Major new capabilities include:
HyperLynx DRC is a valuable tool for resign reviews, efficiently performing electrical design rule checks on PCB layouts:

This highly practical course is designed to take the student through the entire process involved in designing and fabricating high speed PCBs. It begins with the fundamentals of electromagnetic fields and the behavior of transmission lines that are the basis for all high-speed signaling. From there, it examines all of the aspects of high-speed design leading to the development of a robust set of PCB design rules that accounts for power subsystem design, routing rules and design of PCB stack-ups as well as the fabrication rules needed to balance performance against cost and manufacturability.
