All the Signal Integrity You Can Shake A Stick At

Fish Fry Takes On DesignCon

Eye diagrams, Bert Scopes and more SerDes than anyone knows what to do with…what could it be? DesignCon of course.  In this week’s Fish Fry, I look into why DesignCon was so popular this year and why signal integrity issues were the un-offcial theme of the show. I also interview Brad Griffin of Cadence about why we need power distribution analysis and why he thinks DesignCon is the best show of the year.

I also have another MAX V CPLD Development Kit courtesy of Altera to give away this week, but you’ll have to listen to the end of the broadcast to find out how to win.

MaxLinear Integrates Analog & Digital Design in One Chip with Cadence 3D Solvers

Sponsored by Cadence Design Systems

MaxLinear has the unique capability of integrating analog and digital design on the same chip. Because of this, the team developed some interesting technology in the communication space. In the optical infrastructure domain, they created the first fully integrated 5nm CMOS PAM4 DSP. All their products solve critical communication and high-frequency analysis challenges.

Learn more about how MaxLinear is using Cadence’s Clarity 3D Solver and EMX Planar 3D Solver in their design process.
