Preparing For Electromagnetic Crosstalk Challenges

By Magdy Abadir and Anand Raman Electromagnetic (EM) coupling/noise is not a new phenomenon, but increasing bandwidth and decreasing size, along with low-power demands of today‚Äôs electronic systems is making EM crosstalk a first order challenge. At clock frequency of 10GHz+ and data rate of 10Gbps+, parasitic inductance and inductive coupling that were previously safe to ignore are no long... » read more
