A Comprehensive Method for the Design of BGA, Connector and Via Breakouts for Layout?

In designing via breakouts for BGAs, connectors and freestanding via transitions, engineers may box themselves into a corner where layout is exceedingly difficult. Designers may also fall into the “mole hole” of endless optimization simulations that seem more like a game of “Whack-a-Mole” than a design methodology. This presentation will provide a simplified process that is guaranteed to converge application-specific solutions to make the design “work”. Knowledge of general PCB design rules, 3D EM solvers, and full signal channel analysis is assumed.
