Printed Circuit Board (PCB) Layout

  • Thanh T. Tran


Once all the circuits have been designed, the next step is board layout. This is a very critical step in the development process because the effectiveness of the filtering circuits depends on where the components are placed relative to the DSP pins. Also, the board layout has a big effect on noise, crosstalk and transmission line effects so optimizing the layout can minimize these effects. This chapter covers the printed circuit board stackup and layout techniques for low noise and EMI.
