Our 8 best hints for RF PCB design

In technical terminology, we can talk about RF PCBs when the operating frequency of signals is higher than 100 MHz. This category includes microwave PCBs, in which RF signals have frequencies higher...


Our PCB design hints for improving signal integrity

The enormous progress made in the electronic field has meant that the frequencies of digital signals that run through many categories of printed circuits have grown exponentially, confirming what is...


Our top 5 rules for PCB noise reduction

Noise represents a constant pitfall for every electronic device: even if it cannot be completely eliminated, there are techniques that, if adopted, are able to reduce it to a minimum. In general, we...


Top 5 Advantages of Metal Core PCBs

There are several terms to define this category of printed circuit boards, such as Metallic PCB, Insulated Metal Substrate (IMS or IMPCB), Metal Core PCB (MCPCB), Aluminum Clad, Aluminum Base, and...


7 Must Know Rules for Aerospace PCB Design

Printed circuit boards designed for aerospace and military applications shall have a high degree of reliability and robustness, without offering any margin for error. Challenging applications, such...


The best crosstalk reduction techniques

Crosstalk is one of the most insidious and difficult to solve issue that printed circuit boards can run into. The worst thing is that it usually occurs only in the final phase of a project and,...


Our Top 10 PCB Routing Tips

The design of a printed circuit board (PCB) is divided into several phases, all of which are important and indispensable to achieve the goal that each designer sets himself: to create in a short time...


The 10 most common mistakes to avoid in PCB design

The printed circuit board, or PCB, represents the heart and soul of any electronic circuit. Being responsible for the electrical connection between the components and the interfacing of the device...


Routing guidelines for RF PCBs

In the last few years, PCB design has become an increasingly challenging task, mainly due, in most cases, to the combined presence of digital, mixed and radio frequency (RF) signals. In general, a...
