Novel Power Distribution System Design

Daniel Beeker  (Senior Principal Engineer, NXP Semiconductor)

Location: 107A

Date: Thursday, May 16

Time: 3:15 pm - 4:00 pm

Track: ESC Boston, Track A: Embedded Hardware Design & Verification

Vault Recording: TBD

This course will, after an introduction to EM field behavior, describe several effective methods for designing the spaces which are used to direct EM fields on a PCB. The appropriate rules for managing these fields will be described, based on one key behavior. How fast does the switch change states? This defines the requirements for the power distribution and the geometry of the space between the output of the switch and the receiver. From input power connection to the IC die, the simple rules discussed will reduce power supply noise and improve EMC. The “rule of threes” will be introduced, and the secrets to designing the “Plumbing” to deliver the energy will be revealed! This is not rocket science, just simple geometry.
