PCB stands for Printed Circuit Board. A Printed Circuit Board or PCB exist inside almost any and every electronic device or gadget that you may use in your routine and professional life. The PCB lies in a central position in most electronics and, thus, is an extremely critical component. ItRead More
A PCB, or a Printed Circuit Board, is one of the most critical components in any electronic product because it is the element that connects all the ICs and passive components that comprises of an electronic product.
If a PCB is lacking one connection, the product will mostly likely
We recently authored a post that discussed the use of stackups in multi-layer PCB design. But another factor to consider when designing single-layer and multi-layer PCBs is trace width. As with other design factors for PCBs, requirements for a good trace width can impact the size and layout of a PCB.Read More
Manufacturers now commonly make high density interconnect or HDI boards, as these are the fastest growing technologies. Compared to the traditional circuit boards, HDI circuits have a higher circuit density because fabricators use blind or buried vias and microvias when making the boards.
Manufacturers make six different types ofRead More
Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC), Signal Integrity (SI), and Power Integrity (PI) are closely related. We must maintain SI & PI performance and consider stack-up & shield isolation in order to avoid EMC problems when laying out a PCB.
Signal Integrity (SI) and EMC have a direct relationship, so it is
Mentor, a Siemens business, today announced a new e-commerce offering of its market-leading HyperLynx® design rule check (DRC) tool. To mitigate the pressure from adhering to layout guidelines from IC vendors and standard bus technologies while meeting EMI/EMC, safety and corporate routing standards, Mentor is offering a free version ofRead More
