                              As engineers, one of our worst nightmares is doing the same pointless thing over and over again. Adopting a modular design philosophy for Internet of Things PCBs will save you from that monotony. Optimize your design process and save time, money, and sanity, by reusing your PCB designs.

                              The modern designer is always being pushed to go smaller and cheaper. Blind and buried vias can help you save space and money on your HDI PCB. Blind and buried vias help reduce outer layer usage, leaving more room for SMTs and BGA breakout channels. Read on to find out more!

                              As you know, high-speed PCBs can often have issues with EMI. This EMI risk can come from long traces that form transmitting or receiving antennas. Longer traces also cover more distance, which increases the chances that sensitive circuits are affected along the way. Using short traces that take direct paths will help reduce EMI risk from both antennas and trace proximity.

                              Proper routing of differential pairs in high-speed digital circuits is necessary for preserving signal integrity. Follow these guidelines for differential pair routing and leave your EMI troubles behind.

                              Without careful ground planning your mixed-signal PCB could end up producing errors or not work at all. Use some basic best practices get your mixed signal PCB on the right track. Also, take care to tailor your grounding system depending on how many mixed signal ICs it uses with these recommendations.

                              Using AC and DC components on the same board can cause EMI issues, however, these issues can be resolved through isolating the AC and DC systems. There are several straightforward solutions to help manage interference between AC and DC circuits, mainly; shielding components, separating systems, dedicated power supplies, good grounding, and not bridging isolation.
