Beyond Design: FPGA PCB Design Challenges

July 26, 2017 | Barry Olney, In-Circuit Design Pty. Ltd.

The primary issue is generating optimal FPGA pin assignments that do not add vias and signal layers to a PCB stackup or increase the time required to integrate the FPGA with the PCB. Engineers generally do not consider FPGA pin assignments that expedite the PCB layout. Hundreds of logical signals need to be mapped to the physical pin-out of the device, and they must also harmonize with the routing requirements whilst maintaining the electrical integrity of the design.

Performance Evaluation of Thin-Film Embedded Resistors

July 24, 2017 | Dora Yang, PCBCart

Thin-film microstrip circuits have been widely applied in microwave communications, electronic countermeasures (ECM), and aerospace applications, etc. When manufacturing thin-film ICs, it is very important to apply deposited thin-film resistor material to fabricate high-accuracy and highly stable thin-film embedded resistors. Thin-film ICs call for thin-film resistors that meet stringent requirements.

CircuitData: A New Open Standard for PCB Fab Data Exchange

July 19, 2017 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007

An enormous amount of information is needed to precisely and unambiguously define all of the fabrication details for a PCB and ensure that it is manufactured, tested, qualified and delivered exactly as the customer specified. Widely...
