When the instantaneous impedance is flat, we interpret the TDR response as the characteristic impedance of the interconnect. When the instantaneous impedance is not flat, but a peak or a dip, we describe the structure as a discontinuity. Its min or max impedance depends on the rise time.
In this webinar, Dr. Eric Bogatin will explore how to think about the discontinuity as a short transmission line or as an excess inductance or capacitance. This is the first step in building a circuit model for the interconnect or “hacking” the interconnect.
