Why PCB Thermal Conductivity is Important

PCB thermal conductivity influences all design aspects, beginning with stack-up and material choices and continuing through the layout. External heatsinks can be included in the design further to reduce heat buildup on or within the board.


PCB Design Rules for Mixed-Signal Circuit

A circuit board with this much different functionality is referred to as a mixed-signal design, and there is a lot of different electronic activity going on within it. To operate successfully, designers need to exercise caution in the layout of these boards to avoid signal and power integrity problems. Here are some PCB design rules for mixed-signal circuit boards that can help.
