Signal & Power Integrity

Maximize your performance-to-cost ratio to achieve first-pass success

Our signal integrity (SI) and power integrity (PI) teams have the skills to maximize the performance-to-cost ratio of your high-speed projects.

We advise on optimal topologies for emerging memory technologies, interconnects within complex computing platforms, Interlaken systems, FPGA transceivers, and complex layer stacks using next-generation laminates with buried capacitance to support the latest FPGAs and ASICs.
