I-Connect007 Launches Fundamentals of RF/Microwave PCBs Micro eBook


Reading time ( words)

I-Connect007 is excited to announce the release of the latest title in our micro eBook design series: The Printed Circuit Designer’s Guide to… Fundamentals of RF/Microwave PCBs

The Printed Circuit Designer’s Guide to is an ongoing series of micro eBooks dedicated to educating PCB designers. This book series serves as a valuable resource for the most relevant design information available.  

Written by John Bushie, director of technology at American Standard Circuits, and Anaya Vardya, president and CEO of ASC, this micro eBook provides information needed to understand the unique challenges of RF/microwave PCBs.  

The authors answer two main questions: what is the correct material to use for a particular project, and what can be done at the design stage to make a product more manufacturable? 

"In my 39 years in this business, this is the first and only book published that addresses the critical aspects of this manufacturing technology. It is easy to read and packed with great information,” says Mike Carano, vice president of technology and business development at RBP Chemical Technology 

Readers, especially RF PCB designers, will gain a better understanding of issues related to the design and manufacture of RF/microwave devices from a PCB fabricator perspective.

Download this free eBook today at i-007ebooks.com/RF! You can also view our full library at i-007ebooks.com, including ASC’s previously published book, The Printed Circuit Designer’s Guide to Flex and Rigid-Flex Fundamentals.   

Look for these other exciting titles in The Printed Circuit Designer’s Guide… eBook series:

  • Signal Integrity by Example and Power Integrity by Example by Mentor, A Siemens Business
  • Secrets of High-Speed PCBs — Parts 1 & 2 by Polar Instruments
  • Design for Manufacturing (DFM) by Altium 

…and these upcoming releases:

Dave Wiens Discusses Multi-board Design Techniques

07/09/2018 | Andy Shaughnessy, I-Connect007
For our multi-board design issue, I interviewed Dave Wiens, product marketing manager for Mentor, a Siemens business. We discussed how the multi-board design technique differs from laying out single boards, along with the planning, simulation and analysis processes required to design multi-board systems.

Paving the Way for 400Gb Ethernet and 5G

06/26/2018 | Chang Fei Yee, Keysight Technologies
This article briefly introduces the 4-level pulse amplitude modulation (PAM-4) and its application in 400 Gigabit Ethernet (400GbE), to support the booming data traffic volume in conjunction with the deployment of 5G mobile communications. Furthermore, this article also highlights the essential pre-layout effort from signal integrity perspective for physical (PHY) link design on a PCB, including material selection, transmission line design and channel simulation to support 56Gbps data rate that paves the way for seamless communication in 400GbE.

Excerpt: The Printed Circuit Designer’s Guide to…Flex and Rigid-Flex Fundamentals

06/25/2018 | Dave Lackey and Anaya Vardya, American Standard Circuits
The design process is arguably the most important part of the flex circuit procurement process. The decisions made in the design process will have a lasting impact, for better or worse, throughout the manufacturing cycle. In advance of providing important details about the actual construction of the flex circuit, it is of value to provide some sort of understanding of the expected use environment for the finished product.
