Crosstalk Overview

Mutual Inductance and Capacitance “Mechanism of coupling”

- The circuit element that represents this transfer of energy are the following familiar equations

- The mutual inductance will induce current on the victim line opposite of the driving current (Lenz’s Law)
- The mutual capacitance will pass current through the mutual capacitance that flows in both directions on the victim line

Crosstalk Overview

Crosstalk Induced Noise“Voltage Profile of Coupled Noise”

- Near end crosstalk is always positive
- Currents from Lm and Cm always add and flow into the node

- For PCB’s, the far end crosstalk is “usually” negative
- Current due to Lm larger than current due to Cm
- Note that far and crosstalk can be positive

Odd Mode

Odd and Even Transmission Modes

- Electromagnetic Fields between two driven coupled lines will interact with each other
- These interactions will effect the impedance and delay of the transmission line
- A 2-conductor system will have 2 propagation modes
- Even Mode (Both lines driven in phase)
- Odd Mode (Lines driven 180o out of phase)

- The interaction of the fields will cause the system electrical characteristics to be directly dependent on patterns

Since the signals for odd-mode switching are always opposite, I1 = -I2 and

V1 = -V2, so that:

Thus, since LO= L11 = L22,

Meaning that the equivalent inductance seen in an odd-mode environment

is reduced by the mutual inductance.

Crosstalk Overview

Microstrip vs. Stripline CrosstalkCrosstalk Induced Velocity Changes

- Chapter 2 defined propagation delay as
- Chapter 2 also defined an effective dielectric constant that is used to calculate the delay for a microstrip that accounted for a portion of the fields fringing through the air and a portion through the PCB material
- This shows that the propagation delay is dependent on the effective dielectric constant
- In a pure dielectric (homogeneous), fields will not fringe through the air, subsequently, the delay is dependent on the dielectric constant of the material

Crosstalk Overview

Microstrip vs. Stripline CrosstalkCrosstalk Induced Velocity Changes

- Odd and Even mode electric fields in a microstrip will have different percentages of the total field fringing through the air which will change the effective Er
- Leads to velocity variations between even and odd

Microstrip vs. Stripline CrosstalkCrosstalk Induced Velocity Changes

- If the dielectric is homogeneous (I.e., buried microstrip or stripline) , the effective dielectric constant will not change because the electric fields will never fringe through air

Stripline E field patterns

- Subsequently, if the transmission line is implemented in a homogeneous dielectric, the velocity must stay constant between even and odd mode patterns

Crosstalk Overview

Microstrip vs. Stripline CrosstalkCrosstalk Induced Noise

- The constant velocity in a homogeneous media (such as a stripline) forces far end crosstalk noise to be zero

- Since far end crosstalk takes the following form:
- Far end crosstalk is zero for a homogeneous Er
