Mitigate RF Pickup In Power Rails

By David Maliniak and Eric Bogatin

Measuring the noise on a power rail seems to be a straightforward task. However, there are some basic pitfalls that can cause incorrect, or even downright strange, results. Let's look at one of these challenges: RF pickup. We'll demonstrate the effect of RF pickup on a power-rail measurement, and then we'll show you an effective means of mitigating that effect.

PCB Design Rules that Really Matter

This presentation introduces CST STUDIO SUITE Rule Check®: A smart design rule checking platform that includes knowledge of signal parameters such as rise/fall times, voltage swing, and data rate. CST STUDIO SUITE Rule Check assigns a validated set of geometrical thresholds to each net individually, depending on the signal that it carries (DDR, PCI, Ethernet, USB). Learn how CST STUDIO SUITE Rule Check takes rule checking to the next level.

Best IoT Board Design Practices: Balancing Density, Cost, Low Power, and Mixed Signal

IoT applications with an embedded controller, sensors, actuators and a wireless interface are proliferating in many applications. Most of these designs are cost driven, low power driven and with a specific form factor. These constraints often require a 2 layer board. By following a few common design guidelines, it's possible to engineer 2-layer IoT boards with remarkably good performance. We'll introduce the seven most important design guidelines useful for all IoT boards which reduce the chance of SI/PI and EMI problems.
