If you haven’t designed a printed circuit board with DDR memory routing before, here are some ideas on how to plan for DDR routing in your next PCB design.
PCB design hinges on a placement that allows clean routing. The two functions go hand in hand.
Via placement in high-speed designs need careful consideration to ensure that the board performs as expected, and we have some ideas that can help you.
Electromigration analysis can help you prevent a common cause of failure in ICs and PCBs. Here’s how it works.
The routing challenges of high-temperature designs call for advanced design skills and tools. Here are some ideas that will help you with your next PCB design.
There’s a lot more to grounding and voltage routing on your PCB design then simply dropping some vias, you need advanced CAD tool features to do the job right.
Ball grid arrays or BGAs in 4 layer PCBs can be difficult to rout and manage adequate transmission voltage with, here are design tips that can help.
You see, it’s like this. When two circuits love each other very much, they form a life-long bond and then little Diffs are propagated. Not really, but when we peruse the net names attached to the...
The newer generation parts have a pin configuration with two different pitches. The core has a grid of larger pins that are used to supply power and ground. That pin-field is surrounded by...
Linear sweep voltammetry and cyclic voltammetry measurements are critical for examining battery operating ranges and designing charging systems.
Piezoelectric load cell transducers provide high sensitivity measurements with broad range and low threshold.
Scribble is a simple routing mode that allows you to ‘draw’ a route path for the trace to automatically follow. It provides a quick two-pick methodology to generate complex route paths, along with ver
Working with flex PCB designs has some unique differences from a regular PCB layout. If this is new for you, here is some information that may help you.
A typical feature of many animals is that their ears pivot independently of their head. We have our general hearing and then we have focused hearing. We want our machines to have the same ability.
Make sure that your signal integrity is sound, and any excess noise or EMI is taken care of when using cascaded amplifiers.
Routing with vias in PCBs can be tricky for managing signal integrity needs, temperature needs, and still maintaining current and voltage necessities.
Acoustic impedance creating sound problems in your audio system? Make sure to apply impedance bridging between a source/load.
Working with power amplifiers? You’ll need to watch for IIP3 vs. OIP3 due to saturation in your power amplifier.
Need to measure the CTE value for your PCB substrate? Try using differential thermal analysis.
If EMI is a problem, then you might need an EMI filter or shielding to protect your circuits from noise. Here are some EMI filter options.
