High-frequency chips pose difficult problems for designers looking for cost-effective, non-performance-limiting packages for these chips. Agilent's Chris Mueth discusses the different types of packages that are available, the required characteristics of these packages, and the need to integrate package and chip analysis into a common design flow.
Streamlining the SoC Design Flow
Design How-To  
11/20/2002   Post a comment
New process technologies are fueling ever-shrinking chips of rapidly increasing density and complexity. At the same time, SoC times-to-market are also shrinking. Mentor Graphics' Claudia Relyea describes the challenges facing SoC design teams along with some ideas for streamlining the chip-design flow.
PCB Design-Tool Progress Continues Slowly
Design How-To  
11/6/2002   Post a comment
Compared to chip design-tool development, advancements in the PCB design-tool arena are not very dynamic. TechOnLine's Jim Lipman discusses why he thinks PCB tool development is so slow and what PCB tool vendors need to do to address upcoming system-design problems.

Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros & cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight, as are piloted airplanes? Is the technology advancing faster than we can answer the questions it poses? Panelists: Chad Sweet, Director of Engineering, Qualcomm; Yannick Levy, VP Corporate Business Development, Parrot; Jim Williams, ex-FAA drone chief; Michael Drobac, Exec. Director, Small UAV Coalition; Moderator: Junko Yoshida, Chief Int'l Correspondent, EE Times
