ESD Troubleshooting Techniques for Electronic Designs
Presenter: Doug Smith, D. C. Smith Consultants
Tracking down the sources of ESD problems in equipment can be difficult in modern electronic designs. After a brief overview of the characteristics of ESD and its effects on equipment, simple and effective troubleshooting techniques will be discussed that Mr. Smith has developed over many years of solving ESD problems. Live demonstrations will be used to illustrate some of the techniques.
Fundamentals of Signal and Power Integrity
Presenter: Prof. Ege Engin, San Diego State University
As the clock frequencies for off-chip signals approach 20 GHz and beyond, maintaining signal and power integrity are becoming major issues to design a computer system that can actually support such speed. This mini-symposium will cover fundamentals of modeling, simulation, and characterization techniques to ensure signal and power integrity. The following topics will be covered in this tutorial:
- Session 1: Power integrity modeling and design
- Session 2: Signal integrity modeling of losses
- Session 3: Advanced topics: Modeling of through silicon vias for 3D ICs; power plane filtering using electromagnetic bandgap structures.
Session 1: Power integrity modeling and design
Lunch & Exhibits: 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM
Afternoon Session: 1:30 PM - 5:00 PM
Session 2: Signal integrity modeling of losses
Session 3: Advanced topics: Modeling of through silicon vias for 3D ICs; power plane filtering using electromagnetic bandgap structures
There will be an exhibition by vendors of EMC design, test and measurement products and services. During the reception in the exhibit area, heavy appetizers and a cash bar will be available. You are welcome to attend the reception only at NO CHARGE, provided a registration form is submitted in advance. Thus, if you can't join us for the entire day, drop by for the reception and exhibition to network with the speakers and attendees as well as vendors. You might even win a raffle prize! Anyone who ONLY wishes to attend the Reception & Exhibits must register here. The Reception & Exhibits session is also organized as a PACE (Professional Activities Committees for Engineers) event under IEEE-USA.
Mr. Doug Smith held an FCC First Class Radiotelephone license by age 16 and a General Class amateur radio license at age 12. He received a B.E.E.E. degree from Vanderbilt University in 1969 and an M.S.E.E. degree from the California Institute of Technology in 1970. In 1970, he joined AT&T Bell Laboratories as a Member of Technical Staff. He retired in 1996 as a Distinguished Member of Technical Staff. From February 1996 to April 2000 he was Manager of EMC Development and Test at Auspex Systems in Santa Clara, CA. Mr. Smith currently is an independent consultant specializing in high frequency measurements, circuit/system design and verification, switching power supply noise and specifications, EMC, and immunity to transient noise. He is a Senior Member of the IEEE and a former member of the IEEE EMC Society Board of Directors.
Dr. Ege Engin received his Ph.D from the University of Hannover, Germany. From 2005 to 2008, Dr. Engin was with the Packaging Research Center at Georgia Tech, where he was an Assistant Director of Research. Previously, he was with the Fraunhofer-Institute for Reliability and Microintegration (IZM), Berlin. Since 2008, he is an Assistant Professor in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department of San Diego State University. He has more than 80 publications in journals and conferences in the areas of signal and power integrity modeling and simulation and three patents. He is the co-author of the book "Power Integrity Modeling and Design for Semiconductors and Systems," published by Prentice Hall in 2007. Dr. Engin is the recipient of the Semiconductor Research Corporation Inventor Recognition Award in 2009.
