PRESENTATION “Designing PCBs for Success” by Roy Leventhal.
Roy will explain his involvement in changes made to the design of large server board PCBs at 3Com. The changes resulted in successfully going from 3.5 average design turns to 1.1 design turn for working copper. The changes discussed will include the injection of modeling and simulation of high speed digital circuits into the design process. As well, the management, team, and “lessons learned” issues will be discussed.
