• The lattice diagram is a tool for keeping track of the voltage & current waves as they travel back & forth along the transmission line:
• The time axis runs down the page & is usually expressed in terms of the propagation delay (td) of the transmission line.
• The z- (distance) axis runs across the page and extends from the source to the farthest load.
• For convenience, the reflection coefficients at each discontinuity are often placed at the top of the diagram.

• To show the propagation of the signal:
• Use a “vector” to show the travel of the signal along the line.
• Use the initial wave and the reflection coefficients to calculate the voltage amplitude for each successive reflected wave
• Do the same for current.

• Track the signals at the discontinuities:
• Recall from superposition that the total signal (V or I) at any point on the network at a given time is the sum of all waves that have reached that point since the last signal transition (t=0).
• We can now construct the voltage and current waveforms.

Summary
• Lattice diagrams provide a useful tool for analyzing the voltage and current at points along the interconnect circuit as a function of time.
• They track voltage and current wave components, and reflections at discontinuities.
• The voltage and current waveforms can be easily constructed from the lattice diagrams.
• Lattice diagrams are of limited use for complex topologies.
