Additional Trace Losses Due to Glass-Weave Periodic Loading

By Jason R. Miller, Istvan Novak, and Gustavo J. Blando

Glass-weave periodic loading can introduce additional insertion loss at midrange frequencies. This article characterizes these additional losses using actual glass weave cross-sectional data. It also shows how trace route angle and length can set up different secondary resonance patterns.

Accurate and fast power integrity measurements
By Rohde & Schwarz

Measuring ripple, noise and transients on today’s low-voltage DC power rails challenges most oscilloscopes. With smaller rail voltages and 1 % to 2 % tolerances, instrument and probing noise make it hard to accurately measure specified tolerances. Adequate bandwidth is required to see harmonics of fast edges and higher frequency sources that can be coupled on power rails.
