Chapter 2 Summary: The Electrical Engineering Problem Chapter 2 examines the roots of the problem with getting high-speed designs right the first time: The increasingly complex electrical engineering issues that designers of high-speed PCBs face. This chapter explores the different – and often contradictory – forces that work to derail your high-speed design, such as impedance matching, signal loss, and dielectric constant. Readers will discover which design methods are acceptable when designing a digital board, but may not work with an analog, RF or microwave PCB.
