7 Tips and PCB Design Guidelines for EMI and EMC

The electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) will monitor the generation of the radiated and conducted electromagnetic interference (EMI) from electronic circuitry. Poor EMI/EMC, noise generation and poor signal transmission are found to be the key reasons for electronic...

What is a PCB Transmission Line?

A PCB transmission line is a type of interconnection used for moving signals from their transmitters to their receivers on a printed circuit board. A PCB transmission line is composed of two conductors: a signal trace and a return path which is usually a ground plane....

How to Avoid Crosstalk in HDI Substrate?

High-Density Interconnection or HDI substrates are multi-layer, high-density circuits with features including the fine line and well-defined space patterns. Increasing adoption of HDI substrates enhances the overall functionality of PCBs and limit the operational...

Losses in PCB Transmission Lines

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. In our previous PCB Transmission Line...
