Keeping noise levels down was one of the priorities for two companies working independently on configurable power supplies – but without compromising DFM and thermal performance.
Second in a two-part series, describing critical rules that should underpin PCB manufacturing, and how new technologies overcome increasing complexity.
The introduction of the DDR4 memory-bus standard will allow system designers to meet aggressive performance targets for their next-generation systems. But the changes required to support the higher datarates of DDR4 place stringent demands on the PCB designer.
A coordinated design methodology fine-tunes chip-to-package PCB layout and routing that involves high-integration devices.
