1-Day Essential PCB Design and Layout Techniques for SI, PI and EMC in 2023
For design engineers and their managers interested in the cost-effective design, layout, manufacturing and assembly practices for printed circuit boards (PCBs) needed in 2023 to help control financial risks.
Every two years, on average, every type of semiconductor that is available on the market goes through a die-shrink, which makes their emissions and immunity worse. This applies to older device types, like 74-series TTL and HCMOS, as well as to the latest microprocessors, FPGAs and memories, so designing with the same old parts does not protect us from this problem.
So PCB design techniques must continually advance for us to design PCBs in a way that doesn’t cause Signal Integrity (SI), Power Integrity (PI) or electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) problems.
Special PCB EMC design/layout techniques are needed when resonances in PCB
structures are excited by the frequencies present in the analogue, digital or power supply current waveforms.
These special techniques are becoming increasingly essential for all PCBs, not just those that use high-speed processing or data, and are introduced in this course.
After the appropriate choice of semiconductors (or designing your own ASICs), the most cost effective SI, PI and EMC techniques are those applied at the PCB level. This course provides a practical grounding in PCB EMC design and layout techniques that have been proven over many years in real life to help companies quickly improve their commercial and financial performance by:
- Bringing products to market more quickly
- Meeting delivery deadlines to help avoid penalty charges
- Improving functional performance
- Reducing overall unit manufacturing costs
- Easily complying with EMC requirements
- Reducing warranty costs and improving customer perception of the brand
- Reducing overall financial risks
- Improving Return On Investment
This course is kept up-to-date as technology advances and is usually revised at least annually. It is much more up-to-date than any textbook can ever be.

Electromagnetic Engineering (EMgineering) is the basis for proven good design practices for signal integrity (SI), power integrity (PI), and the control of EMI emissions and immunity (EMC).
Our aim is to help people learn how to more quickly and cost-effectively design and manufacture electronic equipment (products, systems, installations, etc.) to meet functional (i.e. SI/PI) specifications and conform to EMC standards, directives and other requirements.
Such equipment should benefit from reduced warranty costs and financial risks, whilst improving uptime, competitiveness and profitability.
We also cover basic good electrical safety engineering; and the Risk Management of Electromagnetic Disturbances / EMI, whether for Functional Safety or other types of risk.Join EMC standards TODAY!
