High Speed Digital Design Principles
by Satish Venkataramni, technical marketing engineer, Intel
All embedded Intel architecture products vary in their uses, but they have one thing in common: the complexity of their design. From an engineer’s perspective there are many new and unfamiliar challenges of getting large amounts of electrical, electronic hardware on generally a smaller piece of board/PCB in the case of embedded design. This white paper discusses some of the major factors that need to be considered in designing an embedded product and the various high speed digital design concepts that play a vital role in the functionality of the hardware/ product as a whole. This paper will help a designer understand why the electrical signals act so differently on a high speed design, identify the various problems that may occur in the design, and solve these problems.
