High-Speed PCB Layout and Design

These courses enable engineers to design RF and high-speed board layouts more effectively.

RF and High Speed PCB and EMI Design Fundamentals (042)

This two-day course enables practicing engineers and CAD technicians to develop design rules for RF and high-speed designs, choose an optimal design tool, and organize the design process to most efficiently execute the design that will insure circuit performance, and minimize costs and production time.

Applied Design of RF/Wireless Products and Systems (161)

This course discusses board layout in the context of designing a product that uses digital modulation. Please review the course outline, day three.

EMI/EMC and Signal Integrity Boot Camp (249)

This special five day workshop covers the methodology of designing and/or troubleshooting an electronic product to minimize the possibility of electromagnetic interference (EMI), signal integrity (SI) and/or Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) problems. PCB layout is covered in detail, please see outline for more information.

EMI/EMC Troubleshooting: Principles and Demonstrations (266)

This three day course covers the fundamentals for troubleshooting an electronic design with electromagnetic interferences (EMI), or Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) problems. Troubleshooting or debugging EMI problems is usually frustrating especially when a trial and error strategy is used. Discover how to localize, characterize, and solve emissions and immunity EMI problems in a very understandable and entertained style.

The course presents how an electronic system can generate and/or receive EMI resulting in a failure to meet EMC regulations. A practical approach with many real world examples, techniques, simulations and hardware tools for EMI/EMC troubleshooting will be explained with an emphasis to minimize costs, production and marketing delays by considering key factors and techniques in the design phase or to evaluate solutions for the production stage.

No prior EMI/SI knowledge is needed but an electrical engineering background (BSEE or equivalent experience) is recommended.

The course includes real examples and demonstrations of problems with reference to narrowband and broadband signals in digital and analog circuits, audio problems, power supplies, etc.
