Course Description

The widespread growth of high-speed digital systems poses increasing challenges to the designers of modern electronics equipment. The use of high speed/high edge rate digital circuits, along with the need for low power consumption, have contributed to higher electromagnetic emissions from circuits, on the one hand, and increased sensitivity of the circuits on the other, leading to Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) problems. Moreover, as the wavelength of operation is getting smaller and smaller, the application of high frequency design techniques is becoming a must to preserve the integrity of digital signals. The use of combined signal integrity (SI) and electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) solutions is of fundamental importance for the design of reliable equipment having perfect functionality and compliance with EMI/EMC standards. This course stresses the fundamental concepts and tools that board designers must be familiar with to avoid electromagnetic compatibility and signal integrity problems. Participants completing the course will be able to make good decisions regarding component selection, component placement, and trace routing.
