Daniel Beeker is one of the top experts in the field of EMC and signal integrity. We met him during PCB West 2018 and asked him about his design techniques.
One thing PCB designers will all agree on is that to breakout a BGA, you need precision and discipline. When you breakout a BGA, you basically apply a fanout solution and route traces from those fanouts to the perimeter of the device prior to general routing of the PCB.
Aviation and aerospace is a hot topic right now. The number of aircraft is likely to double in the next 20 years and space is slowly becoming accessible to tourists. And SpaceX will fly you across the globe in less than one hour pretty soon.
This article covers in-depth the topic of losses in PCB transmission lines. We will talk about conductor loss, signal trace resistance, dielectric loss, loss tangent/dissipation factor of a dielectric, and total insertion loss.
We previously quickly discussed signal reflection in our PCB Transmission Line series. This is an in-depth article about this very important topic that PCB designers should master. The first thing to remember is that reflections in transmission lines occur due to impedance discontinuity.
