Speaker: Eric Bogatin, Dean of the Signal Integrity Academy
Controlled impedance single-ended transmission lines always have a return plane in close proximity. Otherwise, they are not controlled impedance and they make terrible single-ended interconnects. But a return plane is not necessary for a differential pair. Unshielded twisted pair (UTP) cables have no adjacent return plane yet they can make great differential interconnects.
In this webinar, Dr. Eric Bogatin will explore how this is possible and discuss best measurement practices for differential impedance when there is no adjacent return plane.
