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:

  • Thermal Management with Insulated Metal Substrates by Ventec International Group 
  • Documentation by DownStream Technologies
  • Executing Complex PCBs by Freedom CAD 

We hope you enjoy The Printed Circuit Designer’s Guide to… Fundamentals of RF/Microwave PCBs

Why We Simulate

04/29/2021 | Bill Hargin, Z-zero
When Bill Hargin was cutting his teeth in high-speed PCB design some 25 years ago, speeds were slow, layer counts were low, dielectric constants and loss tangents were high, design margins were wide, copper roughness didn’t matter, and glass-weave styles didn’t matter. Dielectrics were called “FR-4” and their properties didn’t matter much. A fast PCI bus operated at just 66 MHz. Times have certainly changed.

DFM 101: PCB Materials

04/30/2021 | Anaya Vardya, American Standard Circuits
One of the biggest challenges facing PCB designers is understanding the cost drivers in the PCB manufacturing process. This article is the first in a series that will discuss these cost drivers (from the PCB manufacturer’s perspective) and the design decisions that will impact product reliability.

Barry Olney’s High-Speed Simulation Primer

04/09/2021 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
The I-Connect007 editorial team recently spoke with Barry Olney of iCD about simulation. Barry, a columnist for Design007 Magazine, explains why simulation tools can have such a steep learning curve, and why many design engineers are still not using simulation on complex high-speed designs.
