Grounding and Shielding: Circuits and Interference, Sixth Edition:
  • Includes new material on vias and field control, capacitors as transmission lines, first energy sources, and high speed designs using boards with only two layers
  • Demonstrates how circuit geometry controls performance from dc to gigahertz
  • Examines the use of multi-shielded transformers in clean-power installations
  • Provides effective techniques for handling noise problems in analog and digital circuits
  • Discusses how to use conductor geometry to improve performance, limit radiation, and reduce susceptibility to all types of hardware and systems

An essential guide to modern circuit board design based on simple physics and practical applications.

The fundamentals taught in circuit theory were never intended to work above a few megahertz, let alone at a gigahertz. While electronics is grounded in physics, most engineers’ education in this area is too general and mathematical to be easily applied to the problem of high speed circuits. Left to their own devices, many engineers produce layouts that require expensive revisions in order to finally meet specifications.

A unique, practical approach to the design of high-speed digital circuit boards.

The demand for ever-faster digital circuit designs is beginning to render the circuit theory used by engineers ineffective. Digital Circuit Boards presents an alternative to the circuit theory approach, emphasizing energy flow rather than just signal interconnection to explain logic circuit behavior.

The book shows how treating design in terms of transmission lines will ensure that the logic will function, addressing both storage and movement of electrical energy on these lines. It covers transmission lines in all forms to illustrate how trace geometry defines where the signals can travel, then goes on to examine transmission lines as energy sources, the true nature of decoupling, types of resonances, ground bounce, cross talk, and more.
