I view this thread with interest. Read the following URL for a summary of PCB design rules relating to EMC
and remember to
1. keep your ground planes aligned
2. do not let a signal line cross a gap
3. It is futile to get a low profile SMD capacitor to behave as a capacitor
at 1 GHz, unless it's size in the order of the 10's of pF
4. Try to lower the impedance of your ground plane by using the thinnest substrate money can buy....
Hope this will encourage you or anyone in this posting to attend a course I conduct in Singapore.
Here is a URL for more information:
