PCB Signal Integrity LiveLessons is a complete, detailed course on signal integrity for printed circuit board designers. There is no other media (including in person seminars) that provides so much material in such an easy-to-learn, convenient format.
Doug starts the course by introducing the basic electronic background information necessary for understanding the rest of the material. This includes his perspective on the historical evolution of signal integrity issues on PCBs. He then devotes the next six lessons on specific signal integrity topics, ranging from EMI and crosstalk to bypass capacitors, to the skin effect, their impact, and solutions to the problems they impose. Before concluding with some final thoughts, Doug adds a lesson on the relationship between trace currents and temperatures, and how to address very large current surges that might melt (fuse) a trace.
