Understanding Signal Integrity in PCBs

When a signal is transmitted, the received signal will always be distorted as a consequence of impedance and other effects. This is why designers work towards minimizing effects on signal quality. Designers try to achieve signal integrity by limiting the extent to...

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 Reduce EMI to Improve Signal Integrity

Electromagnetic interference, or EMI as it is commonly known, is a major cause of signal integrity problems for PCBs. All electronic circuits generate EMI and all are affected by it. EMI may be caused by unexpected radiated emissions as well as though interference...
