Schematic Review

Interconnect Engineering can provide schematic design support in addition to signal integrity simulation. Interconnect Engineering can help in the following ways:

  • Schematic review with emphasis on good signal integrity design and EMI reduction techniques.

  • Verification of decoupling and by-pass capacitor strategies. Value, package size and location will be reviewed.

  • General review using device datasheets to find potential design flaws such as address mapping, bi-directional I/O interface issues, etc.

  • Ferrite bead, pi-filter strategies.

  • General termination concerns, such as high-drive SDRAM interfaces, etc.

  • Grounding strategies (Earth, chassis, digital, analog, etc.)

  • All timing groups should be denoted/created.
