Rick Hartley – The State of Signal Integrity

We met with Rick Hartley during PCB West 2018 to discuss signal integrity, controlled impedance and other PCB designers’ pain points. What can you do to improve your designs? Listen

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.
