PCB Layout and Circuit Analysis Techniques to Maximize RF/High Speed Performance

Course Objectives:

This three-day course enables practicing engineers and CAD technicians to develop design rules for RF and high-speed designs, choose an optimal design tool, and organize the design process to most efficiently execute the design that will insure circuit performance, and minimize costs and production time. The goal is to improve the engineers’ RF/high speed layout knowledge to reduce the number of board turns. Upon completing the course, participants will be able to:

  1. Discuss fundamental RF and digital PCB design issues.
  2. Compare and contrast transmission lines types, characteristics, and situations in which they can be used.
  3. Describe, evaluate, and compare termination types, PCB materials and fabrication processes, and packaging types.
  4. Identify and compensate for sources of interference - EMI and EMC.
  5. Measure and fine-tune circuit performance.
  6. Identify and select tools for analyzing RF and High Speed PCB layouts.
  7. Develop a set of RF/High Speed Layout rules.
