Analog Design and Layout
This one-day seminar covers methods and techniques to minimize the
susceptibility of low level analog circuits. Printed circuit board
layout, power distribution, power supply bypassing, and grounding are covered.
Shielding, guarding, non-linear effects, and resonance effects are also
discussed. Emphasis is on increasing the immunity of low frequency,
low level analog circuits in order to protect them from both internal and
external sources of noise. High frequency analog circuit grounding
and layout are also covered.
