Chapter 6

PCB design for signal integrity


Desirable electrical characteristics of a circuit and its PCB include low noise, low distortion, low cross talk, and low radiated emissions, to name a few. The purpose of this chapter is to introduce the issues that cause PCB performance problems and how to route the PCB to minimize them and maximize signal integrity.
