Accurate Thermal Analysis of Chip/Package Systems Design How-To 3/15/2007 Post a comment With the increasing complexity and power dissipation of modern electronic designs, controlling peak temperature and predicting the temperature profile on the chip early in the process is becoming critical for insuring system reliability. Low power design methodologies create their own thermal challenges, as they may generate "hot" and "cool" regions on the chip. Causes and soutions are explored.
Reed relays switch up to 1 GHz Product News 3/2/2007 Post a comment MEDER electronic has introduced a family of miniature SIL reed relays capable of switching up to 1 GHz. These devices target ATE systems, measurement equipment, computer peripherals, and alarm systems.
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
