Hello guys,
Currently i am pursuing a High Speed PCB design course and i need your precious help to answer some basic questions which i will post in this thread.
Your answers and discussions will help me understand the subject better.

I hope it won't be a much of a trouble, so if you have answer, please share it.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1) How does frequency of operation affect PCB design? How does it affect low level PCB design, High speed PCB design and VLSI design?


2)What are the base material used in PCBs and why?

3)explain parasitics in PCB design.

4)Why analog and digital circuit has different Vcc and Ground?

5)can u suggest a good book/notes online to read rules and checklist for good schematic design?

6) Define Tolerance in PCB design.

7)advantage of courtyard?

basic pcb design

This is a vast topic!

The recommended book for high speed pcb design is,

'High-Speed Digital Design A hand book of Black Magic'
By Howard Johnson and Martin Graham.

ISBN 0-13-395724-1

Dust off your maths hat before reading!

pcb queries

I will suggest "Signal Integrity for PCB Designers" by Vikas Shukla that covers layer stackup, design for EMI not covered in other books. Eric Bogatin's "Signal Integrity - Simplified" is also an Excellent book. If you want some timing information, information about ibis modeling then Hall, Hall and McCall's book is good ( Missing name of book).

signal integrity for pcb designers vikas shukla

Let me aswer the question of material. THe most widely used material for PCB is called FR-4. it's composited by fiber glass and epoxy. dielectric constant of Fr-4 is usually between 4-4.5. Impedance control is usually required by high speed applications. Special materials is used in these boards.
