Part 2: Signal Integrity Issues

Part 2: Signal Integrity Issues

Ten or 15 years ago most people treated printed circuit boards as totally passive devices for connecting components together. As long as the traces were connected to the correct pins, boards almost never had a negative impact on circuit performance. In more recent years, this is becoming less and less true. Many board designers now need to worry about the parasitic elements of traces (resistance, capacitance, and inductance), the interaction between individual traces, and even the interaction between traces and the outside world. Part 2 explains why this is so and what the designer needs to do about it. Many different topics are covered, including EMI, crosstalk, transmission lines and reflections, and power system decoupling. You will learn what a fundamental role signal rise time has for all of these issues, and then what design rules you need to consider as a result.
