Electronics are everywhere. From home to work place and when we travel, we rely on electronics for information, communication, productivity, entertainment and computing requirements. Less visibly, electronics is increasingly running vehicles, factories, managing our data and even connecting our home appliances. A common thread for all of these systems is the need to be always connected – often at high data rates. Data channels and electronics systems must be able to handle this high speed data, without signal or power degradation, or generation of interference. Systems must also pass regulatory requirements in order to be sold in certain geos and they must be protected against external threats.
In this presentation, we’ll look at the challenges created by high speed electronics and the mitigating solutions that are available and that can be explored and tested through virtual twins. We’ll also look at protecting electronics against transient effects such as electrostatic discharge or EMP.
