Power and ground planes should exhibit low impedance over a wide range of frequencies. Parallel ground and power planes in multilayer printed-circuit boards exhibit multiple resonances which increase the impedance and also the radiation from the edge of the board. Resistive termination along the board edges reduces the resonance peaks. Simple and(More)
Author Biography Istvan Novak is signal-integrity senior staff engineer at SUN Microsystems, Inc. Besides signalintegrity design of high-speed serial and parallel buses, he is engaged in the design and characterization of power-distribution networks and packages for mid-range servers. He creates simulation models, and develops measurement techniques for(More)
The objective of this study was to compare the auscultatory findings using traditional and electronic sensor-based stethoscopes. Thirty-three adult healthy Beagles (20 females, 13 males, mean age: 4.8 years, range 1.4-8 years) were auscultated by four investigators with different experiences (INVEST-1, -2, -3 and -4) independently with both stethoscopes.(More)
Computer hardware and communications network speeds are rising at a steady rate. From Moore’s law we know that the silicon computing power is doubled every 18 month, and especially with the onset of internet, the demand for increasing network bandwidth is also on the constant rise. CPU speeds have recently broken through the IGHz barrier, a d IOGbiu‘sec(More)
Abstract A complete derivation of inductance from energy relations is presented, outlining all the key steps and assumptions. Based on this derivation, the concept of partial inductance is reviewed and several useful expressions for partial inductance are presented. The accuracy of these expressions is then evaluated by comparing these formula to 3D field(More)
