1. Introduction: An Engineer's Companion

An engineer's companion is like any other companion: It's a fellow traveler and colleague who offers advice and support, sharing experiences with a friend, in what would otherwise be a solitary journey. Our journey will take us through the endeavors of embedded system design, simulation, prototype development, and test. The dangers are signal reflections, attenuation, crosstalk, unwanted ground currents, timing errors, electromagnetic radiation, and a host of other signal integrity (SI) issues. SI engineering is a relatively new branch of electronics engineering. For the most part, it relates to the analog factors that affect both the performance and reliability of modern high-speed digital signals and ...
