Signal integrity issues remain a concern for many in the electronics industry. This micro eBook details the importance of eliminating signal integrity challenges. Written by signal integrity engineer Fadi Deek of Mentor, A Siemens Business, the chapters explore four possible signal integrity problems using an understanding of essential signal integrity principles.
Deek explores how to reach effective design solutions and make strong engineering tradeoffs through analysis techniques, best design principles, and software tools to achieve accurate simulations and measurements. This eBook has something to offer for any engineer interested in identifying problems, root causes, and solutions surrounding electronic transmissions.
In 2005, Fadi received his B.S. degree in computer and communications from the American University of Science and Technology (AUST) in Beirut, Lebanon. That same year, he joined Fidus Systems as a design engineer. He designed circuit boards at Fidus for three years. In 2010, he received his M.S. in electrical engineering from the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville. He then joined Mentor, A Siemens Business, as a corporate marketing engineer. In 2013, Deek became a corporate application engineer supporting the HyperLynx tool suite. In parallel, he is also pursuing his Ph.D. at the University of Colorado in Boulder under the supervision of Dr. Eric Bogatin.
