I've been using Altium for several years when I've needed to designed boards. However it's all been for simple analog designs and never anything too technical. I'm now trying to take a jump into a ...
The specifications required are as follows: The resistance between ground pins on a connector and the case (chassis) ground should be less than 3 Ohms. The resistance between any other signal on the ...
We have some controlled impedance traces on layer 4 of a board. Layer 3 is a GND plane. Layer 5 is a 3.3V plane. Both planes are unbroken (they occupy the entire layer), with the exception of vias and ...
Suppose I have a PCB that contains a microprocessor, or an FPGA (a "controller"). This "controller" drives a single-ended signal to an LVDS driver IC and a single-ended signal to a connector that goes ...
I'm doing a bit of RF PCB design, and one of the things that caught my eye is the "Controlled Impedance" option. Checking more boxes always costs more, so I want to know if this is worth the extra ...
I am going to try to interface low-speed 8bit DDR2 chip to FPGA, and I've got some questions crucial to make it work :-) 3) What is up with controlled impedance of PCB traces? Why it's important? ...
