The damping criterion is based on the relative magnitudes of the circuit resistance and sqrt (Ls/Cs) which determines the circuit's

characteristic impedance (11).

Characteristic Impedance Without a TDR," Douglas C.

Most 2D field solvers allow changing a geometry term and exploring the impact on an electrical quality such as

characteristic impedance.

This way, it has an effect on

characteristic impedance.

The RG58 cable has a

characteristic impedance of 50 [ohm].

The relationship between the

characteristic impedance of each line Z0, the odd mode impedance Z0o and the even mode impedance Z0e is governed (11) by:

The line has a

characteristic impedance of roughly 50 [OMEGA].

Variable on-chip resistors in the receiver help reduce noise reflections by allowing notebook designers to match the receiving chip impedance to the

characteristic impedance of the cable/connector system.

There are only two parameters that define a single ended transmission line; its

characteristic impedance and its time delay.

TDR instruments can be used for evaluating the

characteristic impedance and propagation delays of single-ended and differential transmission lines.

The

characteristic impedance of the circuit board under design is usually the first, and arguably the most important, design parameter.

In point-to-point architectures, the most commonly used termination strategy is a source series resistor, with a resistance selected so that its resistance plus the output impedance of the driver equals the

characteristic impedance of the transmission line.
