ground bounce

In high-density digital circuits, ground bounce is a delay in reaching ground after a signal transition in a transistor. Caused by a design flaw in the circuit, ground bounce can create erratic logic operation. See ground.

For example, bringing the signal path closer to the return path decreases ground bounce, but at some point, this will reduce the impedance of the interconnect and cause excessive reflection noise.
