Project Description

Course Overview

This short online course discusses a range of PCB parasitics and their effects in RF and high-speed digital circuits. A practical case study illustrates how stubs are used for matching, filtering and biasing in RF circuits.

What you will learn
  • Vias and stubs

  • PCB trace resistance
