SAN JOSE, CA – Dr. Eric Bogatin will conduct two seminars covering signal integrity design principles. The first, entitled Essential Principles of Signal Integrity will be held on April 7 and 8 and focuses on building “engineering intuition” concerning signal integrity, and to reveal root causes and resulting design guidelines to eliminate signal integrity problems.

The follow-up seminar on April 9 and 10 is called Best Board Design Practices, which focuses on creating design rules by balancing performance tradeoffs, and learning how to use calculations and analysis tools to answer important design questions in stack up design, differential pair routing, via design, PDN design and more.

The seminar will be held in the Altera Corporation building, located at 101 Innovation Drive in San Jose. Registration information can be found at
