Printed circuit board (PCB) layout is one of the last steps in the design process and quite often not given the attention it deserves. At high speeds circuit performance is heavily dependent upon board layout. John shares with you some of the tips and tricks regarding high speed printed circuit board design he has picked up over the last 30 years. These range from power supply bypassing to crosstalk, the topics discussed here are at a practical level and can be easily incorporated into your PCB to provide real circuit improvement.

Topics to be covered in this presentation will include but are not be limited to:

  • Power supply bypassing
  • Signal routing
  • Parasitics (capacitance and inductance)
  • Ground plane
  • Vias and placement
  • Power plane capacitance
  • Crosstalk
  • Proper use of scope probes

Who should attend?

Engineers and designers that are new to high speed analog circuit board design, or who have been away from it for a while and want a brief refresher.
