Signal Integrity: The Insider’s Viewpoint
You’ve heard it before: “If you don’t have signal integrity issues, you will.” New low-loss materials are constantly being rolled out to help with signal integrity, and most EDA companies now offer some flavor of tool that can design high-speed, high-frequency boards. But signal integrity continues to perplex PCB designers and design engineers. This month, we bring you a variety of feature articles by some of the top SI experts around.

Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
We continue with the rest of Pete Starkey’s report on Day 1 of the EIPC Winter Conference in Lyon, France. Included in this segment are presentations by Ventec, Ericsson, TTM and others, plus photos of their evening tour of Alstom.
Paul Taubman, Nine Dot Connects
In Part 1 of this series, Paul Taubman made the bold statement that the PCB layout is just as much a mechanical effort as it is an electrical one. In Part 2, he threads the needle, explaining why he believes that a PCB truly a mechatronic design, and why mechanical engineers may be more prepared to take on the PCB layout.
Real Time with DesignCon
Mahyar Vahabzadeh discusses a paper presented by his colleague Dr. Allen Horn at DesignCon. He also explains some of the different characteristics Rogers has discovered as they move from RF into high-speed digital materials.
