A Few Notes about TDR
I called Ken Taylor, the president of U.S. operations for Polar Instruments, regarding a question from a customer about a time-domain reflectometer my fab uses for impedance tests. Continue reading “TDR Impedance Measurements”
In this article, you will learn about Sierra’s 3 free HDI tools, essential for HDI PCB design. We will present and explain how our HDI Stackup Planner, our HDI Material Selector, and our Impedance Calculator work so you can choose which one best suits your needs.
YouTuber and PCB designer Robert Feranec came to visit Sierra Circuits to learn more about our PCB manufacturing and assembly services. As he says in the video, “When you are designing boards, I think it is very useful to know some information about PCB manufacturing.”
A PCB design must weigh the PCB manufacturing needs and requirements; namely, how to ensure your design supports an efficient, effective PCB manufacturing process. A successful printed circuit board requires careful planning beyond the design, materials used, and components soldered. Continue reading “PCB Manufacturing: Becoming a PCB Design Master”
Printed circuit boards play a major role in determining the success or failure of any quickturn project. There are many factors—and therefore many potential mistakes—that PCB layout engineers and other professionals have to avoid to enjoy the benefits of quickturn PCBs.
