  • Reference plane changes occur when a signal transitions from one layer to another and each should be accompanied by a stitching capacitor or stitching via to reduce the risk of common-mode radiation. This video focuses on EMI issues and common-mode noise that can be avoided by using the vertical reference plane change rule in HyperLynx DRC.

  • The continued evolution of powerful embedded processors is enabling more functionality to be consolidated into single heterogeneous multicore devices. Mixed criticality designs, those designs which contain both safety-critical and non-safety critical processes, can successfully leverage these devices and meet the regulatory requirements for IEC safety standards and the highest level of ISO. This w...

  • One of the challenges of developing Autonomous Systems is the level and scope of testing that are required to prove the safety/reliability of the system. Relying purely on hardware prototype-based testing isn’t feasible since this translates to several billion miles of road testing. This testing challenge can be addressed by using a combination of virtual and physical testing. Virtual vehicle and ...

  • High levels of vehicle autonomy offer great promise to reduce traffic fatalities. With vehicles being connected to the internet, safety goals cannot be met without security goals also being met. Most of us are experienced in creating FMEAs for complex systems and performing DVP&Rs to confirm the system is operating as intended. We now also need to include system vulnerabilities to attack and possi...

  • When the length of a trace becomes comparable to the edge rate it can introduce delays in the circuitry. A net is considered to be electrically large and will be treated as a transmission line if the net length to edge ratio is higher than a certain value. Hyperlynx DRC checks for such issues. Such nets can cause signal integrity issues and generally require proper termination.
