True 3D EM Modeling Enables Fast, Accurate Analysis

Sponsored by Cadence Design Systems

Tired of patchwork 3D EM analysis? Impedance discontinuity can destroy your BER and cause multiple design iterations. Using today’s 3D EM modeling tools can take you days to accurately model the interconnect structures. The Clarity™ 3D Solver lets you tackle the most complex EM challenges when designing systems for 5G, high-performance computing, automotive and machine learning applications. The Clarity 3D Solver delivers gold-standard accuracy, 10X faster analysis speeds and virtually unlimited capacity for true 3D modeling of critical interconnects in PCB, IC package and system-on-IC (SoIC) designs.

ERFV Coax Connectors

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and TE Connectivity

5G pushes every dimension of electronic and RF design, and that puts extraordinary demand on or connectors. The best designs in the world won’t work reliably if your connector solution isn’t up to the task. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Claude de Lorraine of TE Connectivity about ERFV Coax Connectors - RF connectors that are designed specifically for 5G applications.
