A transmission line should have a uniform characteristic impedance. Any variation or discontinuities to the impedance causes signal reflection and distortion. Continue reading “How Impedance Discontinuities Affect Signal Integrity”
At some level of circuit complexity, turning to an architecture with blind and buried vias will result in better yield and lower cost than would a through-hole design. In this presentation, we discuss several design examples and illustrate the relative costs and benefits of different architectural approaches.
Designing a flex printed circuit board requires a slightly different approach than rigid PCBs. While flex PCBs can provide major savings in manufacturing cost as well as reduced space consumption and lower weight compared with rigid, their design must be optimized for their materials and use cases. Continue reading “5 Must-Knows for Your First Flex Design”
The healthcare space has seen tremendous technological advancements in recent years. Among the myriad of shifts that have occurred—the rise of electronic medical records, the development of new imaging capabilities, and so on—one of the most noteworthy is also, in a sense, one of the smallest: the accelerating popularity of wearables devices within the medical industry. Continue reading “Wearables, Medical Devices’ Popularity Accelerating in Health Space”
