EDA / PCB Design

The world of electronic design automation is broad, covering everything from the simplest PCB to the most complex custom device. But without such tools, designers would be unable to create innovative consumer and industrial products.

In this section, New Electronics provides technical insight on the latest PCB design packages, as well as on the design tools essential to the creation of devices such as FPGAs and ASICs.

Harwin expands its Gecko series

Harwin has extended the scope of its Gecko Screw-Lok (Gecko-SL) 1.25mm pitch connector solutions – which are mainly targeted at avionics, space, military and autosport deployment.

Solving ground-shift issues in SMPS

Every time a power MOSFET is switched on or off in a switched-mode power supply (SMPS), parasitic inductances cause ground shifts. This can lead to uncontrolled switching of gate driver ICs. In extreme cases, this results in electrical overloading of power MOSFETs and malfunctioning of the SMPS.

PCIM 2018 - SiC now, it’s real

Microsemi will be showcasing live and static demonstrations at PCIM to include three-phase Vienna power factor correction (PFC) topology reference design, SiC MOSFET driver boards, power core modules (PCMs) and hybrid power drives (HPD510 and HPD 520), DRF1300 reference design and DRF1510 reference design.

Crash proof board-to-board connector

Amphenol RF has released its newly developed HD-EFI product line. This 50 ohm micro-miniature interface is intended for blind-mate situations and mating multiple RF lines between printed circuit boards and have been designed to maximize radial and axial float in board to board applications.
