Planning PCB Layouts for High Speed Digital Signals

by Benchmark / April 9, 2024

Electronic circuits are growing smarter while shrinking in size and processing increasingly faster digital signals. Designing printed circuit boards (PCBs) for high-speed digital (HSD) circuits is as difficult as manufacturing those circuits. But for engineers aiming for miniaturized, power-efficient HSD PCBs with excellent signal integrity (SI), Benchmark’s Mike McCulley and Zach Donathan share some of their experience and engineering skills in their article “Planning PCB Layouts for High-Speed Digital Signals” published in the latest issue of Signal Integrity Journal. 

Successful HSD PCBs require a wise choice of circuit materials and practical circuit layouts with minimal propagation delays. These circuit layouts require intelligent transmission paths with well-matched circuit junctions as digital speeds increase. Mike and Zach share some of their design secrets and thoughts on making these advanced PCBs “production ready."
