Track: Boot Camp

Audience Level: Introductory

Format: Full Day Boot Camp

Vault Recording: TBD

Audience Level: Introductory

This single day boot camp is intended to cover all of the issues involved in the design of very high speed differential signaling paths required by virtually all new equipment, whether intended for personal computers or the largest servers and switches used in the Internet.

It is intended for engineers and designers who have products to design that are moving up in performance. It draws from measurements made on more than 30 test PCBs used to determine the characteristics of materials available for use in building ever faster products as well as to assess the effects of structure such as vias, connectors and mounting structures.


Attendees will know what parameters are most important to control when designing high speed differential pairs.

Attendees will know what materials are available for fabrication of high performance PCBs.

Intended Audience

This boot camp is intended to introduce new engineers, designers, materials suppliers and engineers moving up the performance curve from low speed differential signaling to data rates beyond 5 Gb/S. No advanced education is required.
