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:

PCB Design Challenges: A Package Designer’s Perspective

09/17/2018 | Bill Acito, Cadence Design Systems
The challenges faced by the PCB designers of today are significant. If we examine the breadth of designs, we find ever-increasing data rates and more high-speed signal routing that drive additional challenges meeting signal-quality requirements, including reflection signal loss and crosstalk issues. At the same time, designers are being asked to complete designs in shorter cycle times and in smaller form factors. They must come up with new and more complex routing strategies to better control impedance and crosstalk. Manual implementation is often time-consuming and prone to layout errors.

Managing the Challenges of Flex and Rigid-Flex Design

09/12/2018 | Dave Wiens, Mentor, a Siemens Business
PCB designers working with flex or rigid-flex technology face many potential risks that can derail a project and cause costly design failures. As the name implies, flex and rigid-flex designs comprise a combination of rigid and flexible board technologies made up of multiple layers of flexible circuit substrates, attached internally and/or externally to one or more rigid boards. These combinations provide flexibility for the PCB designer working on dense designs that require a specific form factor. Rigid-flex allows the PCB design team to cost-efficiently apply greater functionality to a smaller volume of space, while providing the mechanical stability required by most applications.

Mentor Preparing for Next-Gen PCB Designers

08/20/2018 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
Millennials are the future of our industry. What does this mean for the PCB design community? How do we attract more of these smart young people to the world of PCB design? I asked Paul Musto, director of marketing for Mentor’s Board Systems Division, to explain the company’s initiatives aimed at drawing more young people into PCB design
