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.
Today, we are going to talk about signal integrity. As a PCB designer, it is important for you to know the effects of via stubs on signal attenuation and data transfer rates.
Designing with PCB assembly in mind is one of the most important and frequently misunderstood elements. This series is dedicated to helping you become a designing pro—someone whose PCB design has been optimized on the first try, ensuring a smooth quickturn PCB production process. Follow these tips when you design for assembly. Continue reading “PCB Assembly: 8 Tips For Design For Assembly”
The IPC classifications set the rules to follow when designing a printed circuit board. And between Class 2 and Class 3, the design requirements are fairly different. How much do you know about the different design rules for IPC Class 2 and Class 3? Take the quiz and find out!
