RF/Microwave eBook: Beneficial Tool for Engineers


Reading time ( words)

Released earlier this year, hundreds of engineers and other readers interested in PCB design have downloaded The Printed Circuit Designer’s Guide to… Fundamentals of RF/Microwave PCBs micro eBook.

This book is part of I-Connect007’s ongoing series, The Printed Circuit Designer’s Guide to…, which is specifically dedicated to educating PCB designers and serves as a valuable resource for readers seeking the most relevant information available. Written by American Standard Circuits’ John Bushie and Anaya Vardya, Fundamentals of RF/Microwave PCBs is a strong follow-up to their first design title, Flex & Rigid-Flex Fundamentals.

This book provides information needed to grasp the unique challenges of RF PCBs. The authors answer two main questions: what is the correct material to use for a particular project, and what can be done at the design stage to make a product more manufacturable? Readers, especially RF PCB designers, will gain a better understanding of issues related to the design and manufacture of RF/microwave devices from a PCB fabricator perspective.

“[This book] can be read in one sitting and speaks to engineering, design, layout, materials, and procurement,” commented Darren Smith, Athenatech U.S.A. "It’s a critical read for designers new to RF layout or combining multiple impedance environments."

Judy Warner, director of community engagement at Altium, stated, "This concise, yet very thorough book is destined to become every RF and microwave engineer's PCB fabrication bible. From material selection to skin-effect and the complexity of heat sink technology, ASC has shared every key aspect to fabricate these incredibly challenging boards successfully. Read it and watch your yields increase and your re-spins decrease!"

We hope you enjoy The Printed Circuit Designer’s Guide to… Fundamentals of RF/Microwave PCBs.

The newest version of Altium Designer—revision 19.0—includes functionality for designing printed electronic circuits. We wanted to get the scoop on Altium’s PEC tools, so we asked Nikolay Ponomarenko, Altium’s director of product management, to give us a tour of the new functions.

Mentor Tools: Optimized for Flex and Rigid-flex Design

08/01/2019 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
With the launch of the new Flex007 section in Design007 Magazine, we asked David Wiens, product marketing manager with Mentor, a Siemens Business, to tell us about their tools’ flex and rigid-flex design capabilities. As David explains, today’s higher-end design software tools are optimized for flex design, making workarounds a thing of the past.
