07:30 - 08:20am - Registration & Continental Breakfast
08:20 - 10:00am - Session 1 - Understanding how Electromagnetic Fields behave on Circuit Boards
- The material presented will focus on the basic principles and physics of electromagnetic energy. It will be presented in easy to understand language with plenty of diagrams. Attendees will discover how understanding the behavior of EM fields can help to design PCBs that will be more robust and have better electromagnetic compatibility performance. This is not rocket science, but an easy to understand application of PCB geometry.
10:00 - 10:30am - Refreshment Break & Exhibitors Display
10:30 - 12:00pm - Session 2 - First Pass EMC Circuit Board Design: Techniques to Improve Performance
- As geometries continue to shrink and switching speeds increase, designing electromagnetic systems and printed circuit boards to meet the required signal integrity and EMC specifications has become even more challenging. A new design methodology is required, specifically, the utilization of an electromagnetic physics-based design methodology to control the field energy in your design. This session will walk through the development process and provide guidelines for building successful printed circuited boards.
12:00 - 01:00pm - Lunch with Exhibitors
01:00 - 02:30pm - Session 3 - Power Distribution Made Easy
- This session will focus on a simple EM physics- and geometry-based approach to designing power distribution networks on PCBs. From input power connection to the IC die, the simple rules discussed can be used to reduce power-supply noise and improve EMC.
02:30 - 03:00pm - Refreshment Break & Exhibitors Display
03:00 - 03:15pm - IEEE Recognition Awards
03:15 - 04:45pm - Session 4 – PCB Design to Survive Transients
- This session will cover some simple definitions of Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) and Electrostatic Overstress (EOS) while explaining the important differences in the energy involved and the resulting damage. The session will also review PCB design techniques for improving system robustness.
04:45 - 04:50pm - Closing Comments and seminar survey
04:50 - 06:00pm - Social hour with Exhibitors
