Effective PCB Design: Techniques to Improve Performance

Daniel Beeker  (Senior Principal Engineer, NXP Semiconductor)

Location: Focus on Fundamentals Satellite Area - Outside Room 106

Date: Wednesday, May 15

Time: 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Track: ESC Boston, Track E: Focus on Fundamentals

Vault Recording: TBD

As IC geometries continue to shrink and switching speeds increase, designing electromagnetic systems and printed circuit boards to meet the required signal integrity and EMC specifications has become even more challenging. A new design methodology is required. Specifically, the utilization of an electromagnetic physics-based design methodology to control the field energy in your design will be discussed. This training module will walk through the development process and provide you with guidelines for building successful, cost-effective printed circuit boards.


This course will, after an introduction to EM field behavior, describe several effective methods for designing the spaces which are used to direct EM fields on a PCB. Simple rules for managing these fields will be described, based on one key behavior. How fast does the switch change states?
