For PCB designers and engineers, optimization is key. Optimization of time, cost, and even effort. Sierra strives to provide customers with high-quality PCBs and excellent service. This includes best practice tips for designers. When designing your next circuit board, you need to watch out for some crucial cost drivers.
Annular rings are one of the biggest concerns of PCB designers. You know that you may place your via right in the middle of the pad in the design files, but it just does not mean that you will 100 percent avoid tangencies, or even worse, breakouts. Let’s talk about annular rings, shall we?
During DesignCon 2018, we interviewed many PCB experts. Chris Scholz is one of them. He works as a Product Manager for vector network analyzers at Rohde & Schwarz North America and told us all about the biggest challenges in measuring crosstalk.
Hello again, I’m Amit, the PCB guy. Today I’d like to discuss controlled impedance. Continue reading “How to Control Your Controlled Impedance”
Every day, PCB designs and components become smaller, faster – in other words, more complicated. It is now crucial to slow certain circuits down in order to allow specific functions of components to perform before others. The time of simple interconnecting traces and conductors is over.
