IMS presenting at EDI Con Online 2022

Join IMS at EDI Con Online 2022! Wes Laquerre, Application Engineering Manager at International Manufacturing Services (IMS), will present the Signal Integrity/Power Integrity Workshop. Title: Assessment of Thick & Thin Film Passive Monolithic SMT Resistor Elements in Handling Low Duty Cycle (LDC) Signal Conditions Date: Wednesday, October 05, 2022 Time: 4:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time Duration: 30 minutes Register Today A study of risks and factors designers must consider when selecting a resistor component which will be exposed to low duty cycle pulse (LDC) power. Mechanisms and techniques to compare or predict durability of a given selection of thick and thin film components against a projected LDC form is also discussed. In the past 10 years, requests for passive resistor elements have revealed a growing trend in application specific signal requirements. These requirements include: moderate to high power, LDC pulses with fast rise/fall times, pulse widths under 1uS, low average power, and pulse repetition frequencies (PRF) ranging from 1 Khz to 40 Khz. Applications generally associated with these types of signals include Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Laser (VCSEL) drivers used for 3D imaging and object recognition, Low Duty Cycle (LDC) algorithms used for [...]

Exploring Power Dissipation Thermal Ratings for Fixed Attenuators

IMS Presenting at EDI CON Online 2020! IMS is excited to join the global community of RF, microwave, EMC/EMI and high-speed digital design engineers at EDI CON Online 2020 for FREE, real-time networking, product demonstrations, training, and learning opportunities! Join IMS at EDI CON Online for a presentation on: Exploring Power Dissipation Thermal Ratings for Fixed Attenuators Presented by: Wes Laquerre, IMS Application Engineer Date: Tuesday, October 13, 2020 Time: 01:30 PM EST Duration: 30 minutes A number of thermal/power design challenges are found when PCB Designers evaluate the use of fixed attenuators. It is helpful to explore and understand relationships of applied power, dissipated power and the factors involved across multiple dB values of attenuators whether fixed in a component network or created using discrete individual resistors on a PCB. Understanding all factors involved with properly rating attenuators offers a useful insight into practical challenges. Further, understanding the best practices on how to self-evaluate applications and apply them to the components required to realize designs becomes even more beneficial to designers. Some factors explored here include termination style, pad and via sizing, operating temperature, component substrate, resistor size, trim style and tolerance as they relate to power/thermal performance.

IMS at International Symposium

IMS was looking forward to exhibiting at the International Microwave Symposium (IMS2020) in Los Angeles, June 21-26 2020. The International Microwave Symposium is the flagship conference of the Microwave Theory & Techniques Society (MTT-S) of the Institution of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). In light of the IMS 2020 Symposium having been cancelled, we look forward to seeing you at IMS2021, June 6-11, 2021 at Atlanta’s Georgia World Congress Center.
