How to create the perfect display/board partnership By David Potts, Divisional Marketing Manager Anglia Embedded & Pamela Lin, Product Manager, Advantech

Jul 16, 2014

Thousands of display and board combinations offer systems integrators huge flexibility in application design, but make it a challenge to integrate screen and processor. The display is the ‘public face’ of an electronic system, and users’ assessment of the quality and the performance of their system is greatly influenced by how it is presented. The

Planning to achieve low impedance package traces By: Jitesh Shah, Integrated Device Technology

Planning to achieve low impedance package traces By: Jitesh Shah, Integrated Device Technology Compared to traditional wirebond approaches, flip-chip interconnects provide a better option where superior electrical performance and high signal density are required. However, if the chip I/O floor-planning is not well thought out and optimised for the application, then the benefit of the
