We previously quickly discussed signal reflection in our PCB Transmission Line series. This is an in-depth article about this very important topic that PCB designers should master. The first thing to remember is that reflections in transmission lines occur due to impedance discontinuity.
Today, we are going to talk about signal integrity. As a PCB designer, it is important for you to know the effects of via stubs on signal attenuation and data transfer rates.
A transmission line should have a uniform characteristic impedance. Any variation or discontinuities to the impedance causes signal reflection and distortion. Continue reading “How Impedance Discontinuities Affect Signal Integrity”
Sierra met Yuriy Shlepnev, President & Founder of Simberian, during DesignCon 2018. His company is specialized in signal integrity tools and created a simulation tool called Simbeor THz.
Steve Sandler: “Power integrity is the fundamental basis of all high-powered and high-fidelity systems”
Keynote speaker and power integrity master Steve Sandler from Picotest answered our questions during DesignCon 2018. He talked about power integrity, signal integrity, EMI, and the role of connectors.
During DesignCon 2018, we took the opportunity to talk with Kenneth Wyatt, Senior Technical Editor for Interference Technology Magazine and EMC Consultant. He shared with us his vast knowledge of signal integrity, power integrity, and EMI.
