90 DESIGN007 MAGAZINE I MARCH 2021 1 Wild River ISI-56 Platform Accelerates SerDes Testing E I recently spoke with Al Neves, founder and CTO of Wild River Technology, about the release of their new ISI-56 loss model- ing platform. Al explains why it was so critical that this tool meets the stringent requirements of the IEEE P370 specification (which he helped develop), and why he believes this is currently the best tool for SerDes testing and characterization. 2 Connect the Dots: The Case for Expansive Parts Libraries E PCBs are the foundation of every electronic device, the home for the components that make up your assembly. ose integrated cir- cuits, connectors, headers and passives are what makes it function. How it needs to func- tion determines whether standard compo- nents alone can make it work. 3 A Library Management Cautionary Tale E e library management of footprints, land patterns, or cells is one of the most critical items in the foundation of any PCB or CCA design. When I was asked to write an article on this topic, so many thoughts and experiences instantly flooded my mind. Aer 30+ years of designing PCBs throughout the industry, I have my share of experiences and stories about foot- prints. One particular experience stands out. 4 Gerber File Option Added to Sunstone's PCB123 Order Process E Sunstone Circuits, printed circuit board (PCB) solutions provider for prototypes, medium vol- ume and production quantities has announced a better way to get free Gerber files when plac- ing a PCB order through the PCB123 Free CAD Tool.
