Designing an antenna [Antenna Magus Part 3/4]

This video demonstrates how to use Antenna Magus to design an antenna. This series of 4 short videos uses a wide-band UHF dipole antenna as an example to display the design workflow of Antenna Magus. Starting with a general introduction to Antenna Magus and a demonstration on how to choose an antenna according to the […]

Solving Electrical DRC Issues Early in Your PCB Design Process

Even with careful planning and simulation, the best designs can have SI or EMI related issues. Use rule-based analysis to identify common problems that simulation-only approaches cannot catch. Visit to learn more. PADS®, Mentor Graphics’ world-leading desktop PCB design tool, enables you to develop PCBs within a highly productive, scalable, and easy-to-use environment. PADS […]

What Should Be Considered For Optimal High Frequency Impedance Control?

In this video segment John Coonrod discusses the many variables involved with impedance control for Printed Circuit Boards (PCB’s). Comparisons are given for the magnitude of influence for each of these variables, which allows the designer to focus on specific aspects of a design that can have more or less effect on the circuit impedance […]

Diagnose EMC issues early in the design cycle

How to diagnose EMC issues early in the design cycle before the anechoic chamber test? Model: EMxpert EHX DUT: The device we are testing in this video is the circuit board from inside a functional taxi meter. It is a simple two-sided PCB with through-hole components. There is a small microcontroller running off an 11 […]
