Focusing on a combination of digital and analog circuit theory, this comprehensive volume will help engineers who work with digital systems shorten their product development cycles and fix their latest high-speed design problems.


  • Covers signal reflection, crosstalk, and noise problems that occur in high-speed digital machines (about 10 megahertz).

  • Includes checklists that ask the questions an experienced designer would ask about a new system.

  • Offers useful formulas for inductance, capacitance, resistance, rise time, and Q.

  • Explains the trade-offs between signal crosstalk, mechanical fabrication of tolerances, and trace routing density.

  • Presents a methodology for determining how many layers will be required to route a printed circuit board.
