How Impedance Discontinuities Affect Signal Integrity

A transmission line should have a uniform characteristic impedance. Any variation or discontinuities to the impedance causes signal reflection and distortion.

What is a PCB Transmission Line?

A PCB transmission line is a type of interconnection used for moving signals from their transmitters to their receivers on a printed circuit board. A PCB transmission line is composed

HDI PCBs: Choosing The Right Material

Choosing the right dielectric material for a PCB is important no matter what application you’re working on, but the stakes are higher with High Density Interconnect (HDI) technologies.
