Dr. István Novák, Principal Signal and Power Integrity Engineer, Samtec, Boston, USA, is teaching this unique course focuses on Power Integrity, PI with a broad and unified outlook to Signal Integrity, SI and EMC. It shows that not only the underlying physics, but also many design rules are essentially the same across these disciplines and the seemingly contradictory rules are the result of different initial conditions.
The course is based on forty years of teaching, research and successful industrial design experience. It shows working and proven design practices and pitfalls to avoid. It will illustrate live HW and SW demonstrations, ranging from a variety of home-made tools to professional commercial HW and SW.
This course is a must for system board and package designers, power engineers and their managers as well as for silicon designers who want to understand the application environment of their chips.
