Design Rules of Thumb

One of many design rules of thumb in this article

Abstract:
This Technical Tidbit covers a number of design rules of thumb I have encountered in my life, some pertain to electrical design, and some to physical design. Some I have developed for my work. They are presented as a video and a set of slides.

Figure 1 shows one of the physical design rules of thumb relating to gaskets.

Here is the link to the video:

Touching on topics like signal integrity, EMC, ESD, and general analog and digital design, these webinars are a quick way to get your design working. There are public presentations every week as well as private presentations on demand for as low as $40/person. New virtual seminars and webinars are added periodically.

Check out my public seminars offered in Boulder City, NV. This is one of the best seminar values anywhere and is held in the historic and beautiful setting of Boulder City, NV,  in the historic Boulder City Dam Hotel and Museum. Click here for more details.

The combination of the material presented, the venue, and the passionate presentation will likely make for the best technical short course/seminar you have ever taken! Didn't think a technical presentation can be passionate? This one is. The result is this short course/seminar will likely be the most informative, practical, and FUN seminar you can attend.
