The #1 Practical Guide to Signal Integrity Design—with Revised Content and New Questions and Problems!

This book brings together up-to-the-minute techniques for finding, fixing, and avoiding signal integrity problems in your design. Drawing on his work teaching several thousand engineers and graduate students, world-renowned expert Eric Bogatin systematically presents the root causes of all six families of signal integrity, power integrity, and electromagnetic compatibility problems. Bogatin reviews essential principles needed to understand these problems, and shows how to use best design practices and techniques to prevent or address them early in the design cycle. To help test and reinforce your understanding, this new edition adds questions and problems throughout. Bogatin also presents more examples using free tools, plus new content on high-speed serial links, reflecting input from 130+ of his graduate students.

• A fully up-to-date introduction to signal integrity and physical design
• New questions and problems designed for both students and professional engineers
• How design and technology selection can make or break power distribution network performance
• Exploration of key concepts, such as plane impedance, spreading inductance, decoupling capacitors, and capacitor loop inductance
• Practical techniques for analyzing resistance, capacitance, inductance, and impedance
• Using QUCS to predict waveforms as voltage sources are affected by interconnect impedances
• Identifying reflections and crosstalk with free animation tools
• Solving signal integrity problems via rules of thumb, analytic approximation, numerical simulation, and measurement
• Understanding how interconnect physical design impacts signal integrity
• Managing differential pairs and losses
• Harnessing the full power of S-parameters in high-speed serial link applications
• Designing high-speed serial links associated with differential pairs and lossy lines—including new coverage of eye diagrams
• Ensuring power integrity throughout the entire power distribution path
• Realistic design guidelines for improving signal integrity, and much more

For professionals and students at all levels of experience, this book emphasizes intuitive understanding, practical tools, and engineering discipline, rather than theoretical derivation or mathematical rigor. It has earned a well-deserved reputation as the #1 resource for getting signal integrity designs right—first time, every time.

Make the most of your study time with offline access, enhanced search, notes and flashcards — to get organized, get the work done quicker and get results.

A Pearson eTextbook is an easy-to-use digital version of the book. You can add notes and highlights, plus learn on the go with the Pearson+ mobile app. Listen on the go with the audiobook feature, available for most titles.

When you choose a plan, you're signing up for a 4-month 'term'. You can opt to make a one-time payment for the initial 4-month term or pay monthly. If you opt for monthly payments, we will charge your payment method each month until your 4-month term has ended. You can turn on auto-renew in My account at any time to continue your subscription before your 4-month term has ended.

When you purchase a Pearson+ subscription, it will last 4 months. Before your initial 4-month term ends, you can extend your subscription by turning auto-renew on in My account.

If you turn auto-renew on, we’ll automatically renew your subscription and charge you every month until you turn off auto-renew. If you made a one-time payment for your initial 4-month term, you’ll now pay monthly.

To avoid the next payment charge, make sure you turn auto renewal off 1 day before the auto renewal date. You can subscribe again after auto-renew has been turned off by purchasing another Pearson+ subscription. We use your credit card to renew your subscription automatically. To make sure your learning is uninterrupted, please check your card details before your first monthly payment.

With a Multi Pearson+ subscription plan, you can download up to 10 titles from your library on each of your authorized smartphone and tablet devices every month.

When you’re using your Multi Pearson+ subscription plan in a browser, you can select and read from as many titles as you like.
