GSSG Resonance Method for Interconnect Designs

By Davi Correia, Carlisle Interconnect; Michael Rowlands, Molex LLC; Alexandra Haser, Molex LLC

For many interconnect products, more than 50% of design time is spent on reducing resonances. This paper provides a basic electromagnetic understanding of resonant behavior, a method for quickly determining resonant frequencies, a secondary set of metrics to evaluate if a particular frequency is excited or not, and a set of examples.

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.
