PCB layout guidelines

Many practical circuitss can be laid out easily if the lumped element model holds for the particular circuit. In radio especially, we cannot make this assumption and we must minimize parasitic effects due to layout of components, or take them into account with a more general model and use simulation software such as SPICE.
