Here’s what you need to know about transmission line dispersion and managing losses in your next PCB. A real PCB substrate creates interesting effects on signal behavior that must be considered when designing PCB traces.
Modern PCBs all run at high speed, and digital systems designers need a set of design guidelines that cut through the noise. I've compiled a list of the fundamental high-speed board design guidelines for electronics engineers and how you can use these in your next high-speed PCB.
An embedded system is a computer system with a dedicated function within a larger mechanical or electrical system, often with real-time computing constraints. Examples of properties typical of embedded computers when compared with general-purpose ones are low power consumption, small size, rugged operating ranges, and low per-unit cost. Modern embedded systems are often based on microcontrollers; the processor(s) used may be types ranging from general purpose to those specialised in certain class of computations, or even custom designed for the application at hand. A common standard class of dedicated processors is the digital signal processor (DSP).
