Pop Quiz: When is an Interconnect Not a Transmission Line?
Many of my students, and many engineers, have been brainwashed into thinking that an interconnect only behaves like a transmission line at high frequency and at low frequency it looks like a capacitor. But is this true?
You would think that interconnect design for rf applications and high-speed digital applications would be very similar. After all, the upper frequency range of the applications are similar. Read on to find out more.
Best Practices for Connector Models
At the 2016 IEEE EMC Symposium in Ottawa, I had the opportunity to talk with two of the worlds’ experts on high frequency electrical characterization of interconnects and gained new insight on best practices for connector modeling and measuring. Here’s what they had to say.
How Interconnects Work: Modeling Conductor Loss and Dispersion
Let’s face it, interconnects are the major bottleneck in communication between electronic components. Here’s how to overcome some of the obstacles.
