# how layout high speed pulse PCB traces?

I am working on a PCB design layout, 3 PCB traces, 350kHz pulse signals (logic 3.3V and 0V) are to send via PCB traces. are there any design rules for this type of signaling through PCB traces?

• Frequency is low, so you'll only get problems is rise time is fast, which creates HF harmonics and is more sentitive to signal integrity issues like reflections etc. What's the rise time? (if you don't know, say what chip outputs the signal, like 74HC or ...?) – peufeu Jul 16 '17 at 11:50
• @peufeu traces into 6n137 opto-coupler and traces from output of it to the fpga. typical Tplh 48ns. – oppo Jul 16 '17 at 12:09

$\frac1{48\,\text{ns}}\approx \frac1{50}\,\text{GHz}=20\,\text{MHz}$, take this times 5 to get basically all relevant sidelobes of the sinc spectrum of a rectangular signal, get 100 MHz; so no high frequency or high speed signal in the modern sense.
