Book: Signal Integrity Issues and Printed Circuit Board Design
Publisher: Prentice Hall
The definitive high-speed design resource for every PCB designer
In this book, renowned engineer,author, and seminar leader Douglas Brooks teaches PCB designers how tosuccessfully design boards for any high-speed application. Brooks begins withan easy-to-understand electronics primer for every PCB designer, then offerspractical, real-world solutions for every important signal-integrity problem.Based on his legendary seminars, this book offers even more design rules,specific recommendations, examples, illustrations, and diagrams.
Essential electronics concepts: propagation, current, resistance, reactance, impedance, phase shifts, and more
EMI principles and controls: loop area, uncontrolled differential currents, and common mode currents
Controlling signal reflections: transmission lines, proper terminations, and trace layer design
Power system stability (bypass capacitor decoupling): Traditional approaches, and techniques based on power-system impedance
Eliminating forward crosstalk, and eliminating or controlling backwards crosstalk
Power-system conditioning: power-system plane design and correct board stackups
Lossy lines and eye diagrams: skin effects, dielectric absorption, and more
Two full chapters of simulationillustrations—ideal for thosewithout access to high-speed simulation tools
