Taking a product design from concept to creation can be a complicated process of decisions and tradeoffs. Attention to every detail is required, particularly for the analog, mixed-signal portions of your design.
This webinar will introduce designers to the PADS AMS Design Suite, a complete design capture solution and analog, mixed-signal (AMS) virtual prototyping environment. With this suite, you will be able to create electronic product designs faster and easier while ensuring design intent, performance, and reliability.
What Attendees Will Learn
- Types of circuit simulation and analysis for behavioral verification, scenario exploration, and component optimization
- The power and flexibility of VHDL-AMS and SPICE-based simulation and modeling to accurately represent both a circuit’s electronic and electromechanical elements
- How to balance component costs with tight tolerances against their impact on circuit and manufacturing performance
- How to use a waveform analysis tool and expression calculator for in-depth analysis, measurement, and transformation of simulation data
- The use of the PADS AMS Design Suite for design, simulation, and analysis of analog, mixed-signal (AMS) circuits

We’re in the middle of show season, and it certainly “shows.” Thank you very much. I’m here all week. Don’t forget to tip your wait staff. This week, we published a variety of articles, columns, and news items, and much of it centered on trade shows. Technical Editor Dan Feinberg brings us a report from CES 2023. IPC announced the winners of the Best Technical Paper awards for IPC APEX EXPO 2023. And we have an interview with Altium’s Rea Callender about the company’s educational efforts at APEX and around the globe.
I-Connect007 Editorial Team
Altium keeps its eyes on the designers of the future. The company has been working with colleges and universities for years, providing free seats of Altium Designer for the next generation of PCB designers and design engineers. At IPC APEX EXPO 2023, Altium will be providing software for the finalists in the IPC Design Competition just as it did last year. They offer a variety of other educational programs as well, including Upverter classes and a design competition that aims to address environmental change. Here, Rea Callender, Altium’s VP of education, discusses its educational programs and plans for the week of the show.
Patrick Crawford, IPC
Last year, IPC held its first-ever design competition at IPC APEX EXPO in San Diego. PCB designers from around the world competed in a series of heats during the months before the show, culminating in a showdown on the show floor between the top three finalists. Rafal Przeslawski, now with AMD, took home the top prize last year. This year, the competition is back for its sophomore year. I asked Patrick Crawford, manager of design standards and related programs for IPC, to “layout” the details on the design contest, including lessons learned in 2022 and what’s new for the 2023 competition.
