Yehuda,

The problem is that the signal leaves one piece of silicon, based on one
designers thoughts and space/power budget, and heads out into the
quasi-friendly real world of a printed circuit board, and possibly ugly
connectors, to another piece of silicon (most of the time) on the far end.

A good chip designer should know about the physics of signal travel in the
board, wires and connectors. Building silicon that will work properly in the
anticipated interconnect schema is career enhancing.

Hence both sets of books are needed.

Hi all who gave answers.

Its was not my question, however i found the answers very usefull for me
too.

Can you, please, diferentiate between books which can be of a help for
the chip designer/circuit engineer and for the books targeted the
board/system designer.

thanks in advance, yehuda

Don't you wish there were a knob on the TV to turn up the intelligence? There's one marked "Brightness," but it doesn't work.
