ESD Troubleshooting Techniques for Electronic Designs
Tracking down the sources of ESD problems in equipment can be difficult in modern electronic designs. After a brief overview of the characteristics of ESD and its effects on equipment, simple and effective troubleshooting techniques will be discussed that Mr. Smith has developed over many years of solving ESD problems. Live demonstrations will be used to illustrate some of the techniques.

Fundamentals of Signal and Power Integrity
As the clock frequencies for off-chip signals approach 20 GHz and beyond, maintaining signal and power integrity are becoming major issues to design a computer system that can actually support such speed. This mini-symposium will cover fundamentals of modeling, simulation, and characterization techniques to ensure signal and power integrity. The following topics will be covered in this tutorial:
Session 1: Power integrity modeling and design
Session 2: Signal integrity modeling of losses
Session 3: Advanced topics: Modeling of through silicon vias for 3D ICs; power plane filtering using electromagnetic bandgap structures.

Reception & Exhibits: 5:00 PM – 6:00 PM
There will be an exhibition by vendors of EMC design, test and measurement products and services.? During the reception in the exhibit area, heavy appetizers and beverages will be available.? You are welcome to attend the reception only at NO CHARGE, provided a registration form is submitted in advance.? Thus, if you can’t join us for the entire day, drop by for the reception and exhibition to network with the speakers and attendees as well as vendors.? You might even win a raffle prize!? Anyone who ONLY wishes to attend the Reception & Exhibits must register.? The Reception & Exhibits session is also organized as a PACE (Professional Activities Committees for Engineers) event under IEEE-USA.
