Right the First Time - Volume 1

In the summer of 2003, Speeding Edge published the definitive technical publication on high-speed PCB and system design, a compilation of Lee Ritchey's 35 years of experience in designing high-speed systems ranging from network interface cards to supercomputers and the backplanes used in current network servers and terabit routers. Entitled, "Right the First Time, A Practical Handbook for High Speed PCB and System Design, Volume 1,"the book addresses all aspects of the design process including the physics behind high-speed design such as transmission line management, cross talk management and EMI control. It contains a special section on power system design written by John Zasio, long time professional collaborator with Lee Ritchey. The book is written to be as thorough and comprehensive as possible while still being eminently readable. Volume 1 is now available on CD-ROM for $25 per copy. When purchasing Volume 2, Volume 1 as a CD-ROM is available free of charge!

Our long-awaited second book, Right the First Time, A Practical Handbook on High-Speed PCB and System Design is now available. Published in the spring of 2007, this book is the second in a two-part series. While Volume 1 addresses the fundamentals of high-speed design, this book provides a detailed explanation of the steps involved in designing and manufacturing a printed circuit board that works right the first time. To purchase this book, click here to go to our on-line shopping cart.


Right the First Time - Volume 2

Volume 2 of Right The First Time, A Practical Handbook on High Speed PCB and System Design was published in the spring of 2007. While Volume 1 addressed the fundamentals of high-speed PCB and system design, Volume 2 provides a detailed explanation of all the steps involved in designing and manufacturing a printed circuit board that works right the first time. Designed for engineering as well as business decision makers, it provides a thorough treatment of the processes involved in fabricating complex PCBs. It includes a detailed description of the PCB fabrication process; PCB material selection; EMI and EMC; Gigabit and higher signaling issues; the PCB design process; power delivery details; testing, simulation and simulators and IC package design. To purchase this book, click here to go to our on-line shopping cart.

Speeding Edge Digital Library

This new product, the Speeding Edge Digital Library, contains an extensive collection of highly relevant technical articles that provide more current information on design issues of concern. Provided on CD-ROM, these articles essentially comprise an addendum to our two books, “Right The First Time, Volumes 1 and 2.” Given the changes that have arisen since we published our two books, the Digital Library addresses many questions and issues of concern relative to Power Delivery and Differential Signaling. The Library has been developed in response to requests made during our training courses, consulting efforts and other frequently asked questions. Many of the articles contained within the Speeding Edge Digital Library have been written by Speeding Edge founder and president, Lee Ritchey. Additional articles written by other experts in the industry as well as collateral from industry-leading suppliers are used with the permission of those entities. Note: The articles contained within this Digital Library are different than the technical articles that are listed on the Speeding Edge website. To purchase this book, click here to go to our on-line shopping cart.
