What do you think of these rules? Anything you would add?

all very obvious, AND ALL HAVE CAUGHT ME OUT IN THE PAST. this is my new print out on the wall, a great concise set of rules to be followed,

Rule 2 is absolutely wrong. Topside ground doesn't count as RF ground. The RF ground is the plane used as the reference for your microstrip or stripline traces. Device ground pins need to be connected to the RF ground plane with the lowest inductance possible. This means multiple vias directly to the ground plane. Forget about topside ground - it's worthless for RF.

Yeah - top side ground is a double edge sword - if you use it carefuly you can benefit from it, if not - you can "cut" yourself badly... Careful use of vias is essential!

As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
