Before putting digital systems for information technology ortelecommunication applications on the market, an essentialrequirement is to perform tests in order to comply with the limitsof radiated emission imposed by the standards.
This book provides an investigation into signal integrity (SI)and electromagnetic interference (EMI) problems. Topics such asreflections, crosstalk, switching noise and radiated emission (RE)in high-speed digital systems are covered, which are essential forIT and telecoms applications. The highly important topic ofmodelling is covered which can reduce costs by enabling simulationdata to demonstrate that a product meets design specifications andregulatory limits. According to the new European EMC directive,this can help to avoid the expensive use of large semi-anechoicchambers or open area test sites for radiated emission assessments.Following a short introduction to signalling and radiatedinterference in digital systems, the book provides a detailedcharacterization of logic families in terms of static and dynamiccharacteristic useful for modelling techniques. Crosstalk inmulti-coupled line structures are investigated by analytical,graphical and circuit-based methods, and techniques to mitigatethese phenomena are provided. Grounding, filtering and shieldingwith multilayer PCBs are also examined and design rules given.
* Written by authors with extensive experience in industry andacademia.
* Explains basic conceptual problems from a theoretical andpractical point of view by using numerous measurements andsimulations.

* Companion website containing lists of codes and samplematerial.
Signal Integrity and Radiated Emission of High-Speed DigitalSystems is a valuable resource to industrial designers ofinformation technology, telecommunication equipment and automationequipment as well as to development engineers. It will also be ofinterest to managers and designers of consumer electronics, andresearchers in electronics.
