Plane Noise Effects

High-speed digital drivers need a good source of power to produce clean, fast signals. For a driver to switch the state of a signal in tens or hundreds of picoseconds, the power plane must be able to supply significant current over a wide bandwidth. The surge in current creates voltage fluctuations in the power distribution […]
