How to reduce signal integrity problems
When interconnects are not transparent, they will only create noise in your system. To reduce this noise, you must understand the root cause and fix the problem at the root cause. Whole books have been written on this topic (I wrote 4 of them), dozens of short courses are available (I’ve taught six of them) and many university courses (I teach 4 of these) are available that cover these topics. But, if you only have 6 hours to learn everything you need to know about SI problems and solutions, this six-hour course is the one you should take to learn how to reduce your SI problems in your next board designs.
The topics covered in this 6-hour short course are:
1. A strategy for PCB design for SI
2. Signals, rise time and bandwidth
3. Re-thinking signal propagation and ground bounce
4. PDN design and decoupling capacitors
5. Controlled impedance, reflections and discontinuities
6. Differential pair design and length matching
7. Routing and termination strategies
8. Cross talk
9. “Noisy grounds” and split grounds
10. Via design, stack up and layer transitions
11. High speed serial links and lossy interconnects
