PCB Return-Current Distribution in a Microstrip Line

This article discusses the distribution of a PCB return current underneath top trace for the microstrip configuration. Next month’s article will discuss the distribution for the stripline configurations.

Basic EMC Rules

This article discusses the origins, justification, and interrelations between some of basic EMC rules regarding the highest significant frequency (bandwidth) present in digital signals, definition of the electrically short structures, and the transmission line criterion.

Skin Depth in Good Conductors

This tutorial article focuses on the skin depth phenomenon in good conductors. In order to explain this concept, we begin with the uniform plane propagation, leading to the wave equations and their solutions in... Read More...
