The Effect of PDN Elements on Impedance
Modern PCB designers are faced with an interesting challenge. The customer demands high speed PCB components with low impedance power networks. But high signal components tend to draw a lot of power..
On the Order Form
People get ideas. Naturally, they want to act on those ideas. The hold-up comes when they don’t really know what they’re getting into with regards to the PCB.
Techniques for Optimizing Return Paths
That return path may or may not be the one that was designed for the circuit. A poorly designed return path will result in the return currents wandering around and escaping as electromagnetic...

How is a Multi-board PCB System Assembly Different from Rigid-Flex Assembly
When people typically think of multi-board PCB design, they tend to picture racks of boards in server farms or the components of a gaming rig. But what if your typical rigid boards don’t fit...
Making Sense Out of Sensors
The human, or any other animal’s body, is a marvel for its ability to take in data from its surroundings. We can detect light, temperature, pressure, aroma, and, sound. Some member...
What Role do PCB Designers Play in Product Field Service?
At the end of the day, your products are only as good as their in-the-field performance. It doesn’t matter how well they performed in a controlled environment.
How To Maintain Connectivity in a Multiboard PCB System
Bringing a multiboard system together is a chance for the designer to spread their wings. As the circuit spreads, so do the risk of crossed signals. Some of the ways the circuits can...
Making the Little Things Count on Your PCB Design
Even as everything related to electronics shrinks in size, a few small areas that we have been able to ignore so far remain. Along with the physical reduction, we also encounter reductions in our...
