Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would
be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate
that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views.
It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if
you would like to post something on RF Cafe's
page, please do.
Below are all of the forum threads, including all
the responses to the original posts.

I've been trying to find material on PCB design and fabrication
online but without any luck. Any help would be appreciated.

For PCB layout software and fabrication, try:
I hope this is what you want - if not, could you be more specific?

I need to construct a PCB
power amplifier (designed to handle PEP of 300W) for a coupling unit
topology, which in turn is to be used for Powerline Communication Networks.
There are PCB milling machines in my department.
I would like
to get some tips on implementing this high power PCB design (this is
my first time), any precautions to be observed and useful material online
or in the form of books.
Thanx again.. You have been really helpful..

The best advice I can give
you would be to go to Freescale website and find out an example for
an Evaluation Board (EVB) for an RF Power Transistor :!:
data sheet of the device usually contains the Bill of Materials of the
EVB including components values and also the PCB layout of the board
and the substrate it is made of. In many cases, the substrate being
used is ROGERS 4003/4350 but there are sometimes exceptions.
You can find a lot of useful information in their website.
luck, should you need more information please let me know. :)
