Practical Considerations in the Modeling and Characterization of Printed-Circuit Board Wiring

The importance of increased accuracy in modeling and characterization of printed-circuit board wiring is highlighted through practical examples. Recommendations are given regarding model causality, bandwidth, measurement methodology improvement for both production-level and offline monitoring of impedance, roughness, and dielectric loss and their significance for system design, performance, delivery, and cost is discussed.
