Why Controlled Impedance Really Matters?

Why Controlled Impedance Really Matters?

Every day, PCB designs and components become smaller, faster – in other words, more complicated. It is now crucial to understand your critical nets and traces, impedances, and how the board impacts the performance of the signal. The time of simple interconnecting...

How to Avoid Crosstalk in HDI Substrate?

How to Avoid Crosstalk in HDI Substrate?

Miniaturization of the copper features in electronic circuits results from placing interconnections closely with a high packing density. As a result, crosstalk in HDI PCB substrate comes at play because of the increased coupling between the adjacent signal lines. HDI...
