I-Connect007 Launches Fundamentals of RF/Microwave PCBs Micro eBook


Reading time ( words)

I-Connect007 is excited to announce the release of the latest title in our micro eBook design series: The Printed Circuit Designer’s Guide to… Fundamentals of RF/Microwave PCBs

The Printed Circuit Designer’s Guide to is an ongoing series of micro eBooks dedicated to educating PCB designers. This book series serves as a valuable resource for the most relevant design information available.  

Written by John Bushie, director of technology at American Standard Circuits, and Anaya Vardya, president and CEO of ASC, this micro eBook provides information needed to understand the unique challenges of RF/microwave PCBs.  

The authors answer two main questions: what is the correct material to use for a particular project, and what can be done at the design stage to make a product more manufacturable? 

"In my 39 years in this business, this is the first and only book published that addresses the critical aspects of this manufacturing technology. It is easy to read and packed with great information,” says Mike Carano, vice president of technology and business development at RBP Chemical Technology 

Readers, especially RF PCB designers, will gain a better understanding of issues related to the design and manufacture of RF/microwave devices from a PCB fabricator perspective.

Download this free eBook today at i-007ebooks.com/RF! You can also view our full library at i-007ebooks.com, including ASC’s previously published book, The Printed Circuit Designer’s Guide to Flex and Rigid-Flex Fundamentals.   

Look for these other exciting titles in The Printed Circuit Designer’s Guide… eBook series:

  • Signal Integrity by Example and Power Integrity by Example by Mentor, A Siemens Business
  • Secrets of High-Speed PCBs — Parts 1 & 2 by Polar Instruments
  • Design for Manufacturing (DFM) by Altium 

…and these upcoming releases:

Pulsonix 10.5 Development Driven by Customer Demand

06/27/2019 | Barry Matties, Publisher, I-Connect007
I recently spoke with Bob Williams, the managing director of Pulsonix, about the release of the EDA tool’s version 10.5. Bob explained how the company had made the tool more intuitive based on user input, and he discussed some of the more cutting-edge functionality not normally found in competitively priced tools.

Stitching Capacitor: Crosstalk Mitigation for Return Path Discontinuity

06/13/2019 | Chang Fei Yee, Keysight Technologies
When the return path is broken due to the switching of reference planes with different potential, e.g., from ground to power or vice versa after layer transition on PCB, the return current might detour and propagate on a longer path, which causes a rise in loop inductance. This might lead to the sharing of a common return path by different signals that pose a high risk of interference among the signals due to higher mutual inductance. This interference results in signal crosstalk. To mitigate the crosstalk due to return path discontinuity (RPD), stitching capacitors are mounted on the PCB to serve as a bridge between the two reference planes of interest on different PCB layers.
