Hi Stephen:

I think it's hard to recommend just one book, as there are a number of them, 
and they're all a bit different in their focus.  I haven't heard of the book 
you mentioned, but it sounds more theoretically focused, where you seem to be 
looking for something that's applied.  

Here are a few books to consider.  (If it were me, I'd just buy them all and 
flip through them ... They're all well written and illustrated.)

[1] Lee Ritchey's "Right the First Time," Vol. 1 and 2 - Very much focused on 
hands on/applied design tips; well illustrated/color.  www.speedingedge.com  
(Not much about eye diagram analysis or multi-GHz design.)

[2] Eric Bogatin's "Signal and Power Integrity Simplified" - good mix of theory 
and practice.  (Amazon.com)

[3] Hall, Hall, and McCall's "High-Speed Digital Design." - Good on 
fundamentals; not much on Multi-GHz, as I remember.  (Amazon.com)

[4] Dr. Howard Johnson's "High Speed Digital Design: A handbook of Black Magic" 
- An old (1993) classic.  Part II ("High Speed Signal Propagation") gets more 
into multi-GHz effects (~2003, I believe).  Both incorporate a good bit of 
theory along with implementation tips.  (Amazon.com)

[5] Doug Brooks' " Signal Integrity Issues and Printed Circuit Board Design" 
gets into SI at a theoretical level, and is suited for bringing PCB Designers 
up to speed on SI.  (Amazon.com)

Subject: [SI-LIST] Intro to Signal Integrity fundamental book

Hi, All,
Can anyone recommend me a good fundamental signal integrity book?
I am an ~15 yrs ASIC Electrical Engineer (primary in digital area and small 
exposure to analog/mixed design) who is recently jumping into signal integrity 
project that will be "applying" the SI concepts on transmission line to analyze 
IO behavior, impedance analysis, eye-diagram analysis, dc/ac behavior of its 
spice simulation...etc.

I am looking for an "applied" SI book that is fundamental and easy to 
understand for EE person like me.
I found a forum that recommended this intro book: "Electromagnetics for 
Engineers" by Fawwaz T. Ulaby

Has anybody read that book and can validate if it's a good starting point book 
for me? Or maybe there is a better book out there for me?

Thank you very much for your help on this.

Regards,
Stephen
