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 to successfully design boards for any high-speed application. Brooks begins with an easy-to-understand electronics primer for every PCB designer, then offers practical, 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.

Coverage includes–

  • 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 simulation illustrations–ideal for those without access to high-speed simulation tools

    A chasm has been bridged...

    As an educator, lecturer and practicing designer I am given many books to read and make comment on. I find very few books that are able to bridge the chasm between the needs of a beginner learning about signal integrity and the needs of a professional desperate to solve design problems. This book is an excellent primer and reference for understanding the interrelationship between the board layout and the signal integrity problem. This book details design solutions to classic signal integrity problems and educates the novice in understanding the reasoning behind the solutions. There is a lot of nonsense being written about signal integrity and few people have the resources to filter out the chaff from hay. This book proves every principle presented with tested board layouts, demonstrated engineering principles, or documented laboratory results. Some people can see the world in formulas and some see the world pictorially. This book is rich in both forms of expressionism and its presentation will not exasperate the PCB designer who sees the world visually, or frustrate the engineer seeking equations for design representation. This book has been added to the required reading list for our PCB layout designers and product development engineering teams.
