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:

Advanced Stackup Planning with Impedance, Delay and Loss Validation

08/02/2018 | Yuriy Shlepnev, Simberian
A typical PCB design usually starts with the material selection and stackup definition—the stackup planning or design exploration stage. How reliable are the data provided by the material vendors and PCB manufacturers? Can we use these data to predict trace width and spacing for the target trace impedance or to calculate delays or evaluate the loss budget?

Achieving Optimum Signal Integrity During Layer Transition on High-Speed PCBs

07/11/2018 | Chang Fei Yee, Keysight Technologies
In electronic systems, signal transmission exists in a closed-loop form. The forward current propagates from transmitter to receiver through the signal trace. Meanwhile, the return current travels backward from receiver to transmitter through the power or ground plane directly underneath the signal trace that serves as the reference or return path. The path of forward current and return current forms a loop inductance. It is important to route the high-speed signal on a continuous reference plane so that the return current can propagate on the desired path beneath the signal trace.

Faster Board Speeds Demand Constraint-Driven Design

06/19/2018 | Ralf Bruening, Zuken
Using powerful constraint techniques can be a double-edged sword. While the design process is made much safer by including constraints, it is all too easy to over-constrain the design and make it impossible to complete routing and placement. Even paper design guidelines can make products uneconomic to produce unless a great deal of engineering knowledge is applied during the design.
