DDR5 is the latest generation of memory in development, doubling the peak data rate to 6400 MT/s (compared to DDR4). With great technical ambitions come much tighter specifications for system PCB designers; Especially when faced with channel loss, skew, reflections and crosstalk, all of which become much more significant at higher frequencies. In fact, PCB design margins are so minimal that DDR5 introduces equalization on the commodity DRAM chips, for the first time.
The fast signal switching times of today’s digital systems require particular attention to the signal integrity during design to ensure reliable operation and EMI control.
Did you know that Zuken Global Support (ZGS) is a support website that is used worldwide at Zuken? For global companies with design locations around the world, ZGS is the common support tool used to tie global companies together and offers access to Zuken support teams worldwide. In addition, through this extended reach Zuken Applications Engineers have direct access to our development teams so deeper problems may be solved in tandem with our development teams directly through ZGS.
This webinar will explore the technology requirements and implementation best practices behind Stretchable Circuits, also known as Stretch-Rigid. A number of industries including wearables, health and medical devices are taking advantage of this emerging technology. If you are new to Stretch-Rigid or are interested in design best practices, please join us for this webinar.
This webinar will discuss how a component data management system together with a trusted content provider, such as SiliconExpert, provides the backbone for making your design environment an accurate and robust source for engineering component selection.
This webinar will discuss the different release profiles from WIP to a manufacturing-centric PLM system followed by the demonstration of best practices that can make the job easier and more reliable.
This webinar will explore the benefits of a modern PCB panelization process that can lower manufacturing costs and give your control of the DFM process as soon as the actual board outline is determined. Learn how you can start with a PCB design that is still in the layout phase and instantiate it into a panel. We will explain what items are part of the PCB design and what items should be designed into the panel such as routing and v-cut details.
This webinar will discuss the challenges of producing a manufacturable Flex design as well as provide information on a tool based solution to address these challenges. Flex designs create challenges for most PCB tools in that the traditional PCB object checks do not account for the nuances of Flex checks.
This webinar will examine many of the concerns and challenges faced when producing release packages.
This webinar is Part 3 of a 3 part series covering the systems engineering process of converting product or system requirements into a viable and robust hardware architecture and then moving that architecture directly into detailed design without any manual re-entry.

This webinar is Part 1 of a 3 part series covering the systems engineering process of converting product or system requirements into a viable and robust hardware architecture and then moving that architecture directly into detailed design without any manual re-entry.
In this webinar we will explore the process for performing a quick EMC analysis followed by a more in-depth EMC analysis driven by properties assigned during schematic capture.
This webinar will discuss and demonstrate the key concepts behind a 3D multi-discipline design where supplychain, PCB, MCAD and analysis all converge into a next generation design process.
This webinar will demonstrate a virtual prototyping solution that validates a set of product requirements against a proposed detailed design.
This webinar will demonstrate how next generation ECAD software is being used to address the IP theft challenge with permission controls that enable users to define with a high level of granularity the design information that will be included and excluded from the published data set.
During this webinar we will demonstrate how to create, manage and grow an engineering knowledge base, and use that information to greatly improve your PCB design process.
Traditional schematic entry tools offer the ability to create a single logical design to drive a single PCB layout.
The webinar will explore various points in the design flow where co-design of the FPGA and board layout can take place; this includes library part creation, schematic entry, I/O optimization and pin assignment management during board layout. See how a FPGA / PCB co-design process can improve overall design quality in less time.
This webinar explores how to realize a DDR3 system using constraints and validate the design’s timing margins.
This webinar is aimed to help the audience identify disconnects in the chip, package, and board design environment; and explore methods to optimize interconnects, improve design collaboration, and enable signal traceability and analysis across the complete system.
This session presents aspects of achieving good power integrity by defining key concepts, showing example layouts, and using PI analysis tools to help better understand PI effects and mitigation techniques.
This webinar will present an approach to make ECAD / MCAD collaboration part of your standard design process. Easily import MCAD data and orient multiple PCBs within the enclosure and detect collisions. Make corrections and re-analyze.
Design rework can cost you time and money. And going back and forth between ECAD and MCAD departments takes time.
Often, the planning of an electronic system is done with disparate tools that were not designed for electronic system planning. This is not only inefficient, requiring many workarounds, but later forces you to re-enter your design planning data into the design authoring tools.
The advent of the Internet of Things (IoT) offers the potential to automatically collect detailed performance information from every device in the field at minimal cost.
This white paper explores the benefits of bringing all these design domains together in a single tool that enables the translation of product requirements into an initial hardware architecture, ready for detailed design.
The electronic product design process is being challenged like never before, with the need to develop feature-rich, light, compact products at a lower cost in less time.
This white paper explores the benefits of product-centric design and how it differs from current-generation PCB-centric processes and tools.

Toshiba Achieves Significant Product Size Reduction using 3D Chip, Package, Board Co-design in CR-8000 Design Force
Toshiba faced a difficult design problem: their TransferJet™ technology was embedded in a customer cell phone, and when the next rev of the phone came around, they learned that they needed to shrink the board from 8mm x 8mm to 4.5mm x 6mm, and they had to shrink the module thickness from 1.7mm to 1.0mm.Read More
