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 […]

Designing a PCB for power integrity

Signal integrity (SI) issues have been around for a while, the result of ever-faster edge rates. Both SI and PI problems manifest themselves as data errors. Indeed, PI problems are often misdiagnosed as SI problems. As such, an understanding of power delivery issues is essential to the success of any board project, as is a [...]
