PCB layout tips for thermal vias

I came across an article on PCB layout in Electronic Design magazine. It’s a pretty good article and I am glad to see the trade magazines realize we care as much about PCB layout as the bus-caching architecture of some DSP chip. The article talks about using vias to take heat away from the die-attach-paddle (DAP) of integrated circuits: “To reduce operating temperatures easily, use more layers of solid ground or power planes connected directly to heat sources with multiple vias. Establishing ef...

Fly-Buck converter PCB layout tips

Synchronous buck converters have gained acceptance as isolated bias supplies in communications and industrial markets. Isolated buck converters, or Fly-Buck™ converters as they are commonly called, have a coupled inductor in place of the buck converter inductor which is used to create isolated outputs in addition to the non-isolated buck output. Each isolated output only needs a winding, a rectifier diode, and an output capacitor. Multiple semi-regulated isolated, or non-isolated, outputs ...

PCB Layout Tips for Engineer

Placing ComponentsGenerally, it is best to place PCB parts only on the top side of the board.When placing components, make sure that the snap-to-grid is turned on. Usually, a value of 0.050" for the snap grid is best for this job.First place all the components that need to be in specific locations. This includes connectors, PCB switches, LEDs, mounting holes, heat sinks or any other item that mounts to an external location.Give careful thought when placing component to PCB minimize trace lengths...

PCB Layout Example

Harvey invents a device PCB that keeps a record of the telephone calls made from his phone. The design is relatively simple and is shown in Figure 15. However, PCB when it is hooked up to the phone line, radiation from the device interferes with his TV reception. Redesign Harvey's board in order to reduce the radiated EMI. You may move PCB components and/or add components, but you must use a single-sided board. We should PCB begin by identifying the potential sources and antennas. Certainly, t...

PCB Layout Tips

When it's time to move your circuit off the breadboard and into a practical application, you will have to design a printed circuit board, or PCB. PCB layout can be daunting for the beginner because of practical considerations like heat and unintended capacitance and resistance that are not present when designing a circuit on paper. These PCB layout tips outline some of the major factors to consider when designing a circuit board. Watch Out For Board CapacitorsThere will always be a tiny amount...

Common Signal Integrity Issues in a PCB Layout

Electrical circuits for equipment such as televisions and cell phones contain printed circuit boards (PCBs). A typical PCB contains a large number of electronic components, such as resistors and electronic chips. These components are connected through copper traces on the board. Electrical currents, or signals, pass between the components through these traces. The quality of these currents or signals is often termed "signal integrity." Various factors can affect signal integrity. Signal Reflec...

CADSTAR for high-speed design specialists

Why is high-speed important? To meet the growing demand for smaller, faster, more powerful products, IC vendors deliver complex devices that require special consideration of track length, skew, impedance, noise immunity and signal integrity. Implementing these devices in your products requires an increasing knowledge of constraint-driven high-speed design techniques and an in-depth understanding of the science and technology of signal propagation. The CADSTAR high-speed design tools have been ...

The PCB Layout

As soon as parts of your schematic begin to solidify you can start laying out your PCB. The PCB has a dependency on the logical design and schematics, so it will always be finished after the schematics are. This dependency can be a limiting factor depending on how serial your design process is. The more serial you operate, the more it will limit; the less serial and more collaborative your process, the more likely your layout will finish within days or even hours of your schematics. When you ...

A good layout to optimize efficiency , reduce thermal stress and to minimize noise and line of action and go between the components . It all stems from the designer in the current conduction path for power and signal flow understanding. When a prototype power board power is first applied , the best case is that it can not only work, but also quiet , low heat. However, this situation is rare . A common problem with switching power supply is " unstable" switching waveforms . In some cases, the j...
