After establishing what a PCB transmission line is and talking about signal speed and propagation delay, and the critical length, the controlled impedance, and the rise/fall time of a PCB transmission line, we discussed impedance discontinuity and signal reflection. Today, we are going to explain how to analyze a PCB transmission line using quantities, such as voltages and currents, and line parameters, such as resistance, inductance, capacitance, and conductance.
Sierra Circuits will hold a two-day PCB design workshop led by PCB expert Robert Feranec on board layout design engineering for semiconductor manufacturing. The event will take place on May 17 and 18 at the Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California.
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.
Advanced Flight Systems submitted a design for one of our summer contests, and we’re proud to share it with you. This excellent design includes a focus on signal integrity, controlled impedance, and high speed. Continue reading “Advanced Flight System’s High Speed PCB Design”
DesignCon 2015 begins in just a few weeks, and Sierra Circuits is excited! For those planning to attend, make sure you check out Keysight Technologies’ session. Continue reading “Keysight Technologies at DesignCon”
