When the adjacent ground trace is brought close, it will intercept these fringe fields, but they will also go to ground (FIGURE 2).
The proximity of the adjacent ground trace should not have a strong impact on the signal trace.
It's best to run a clock net and then have a ground trace shielding the entire path of the clock trace.
Power and Ground traces should be wide enough to withstand high-amperage current with low impedance.
According to the association, "this object left prominent ground traces which were subsequently photographed and measured.
During switching, current can flow through ground traces, hence the need to have a low inductance to the power and ground plane.
All power and ground traces longer than a specified distance must be wider than another specified distance.
The View from the Ground traces a life of extraordinary interest and it begins with Justice at Night, in which she tells how a series of trivial events led to her witnessing a lynching.
It is also critical that all sensitive signals are shielded from the rest of the circuitry by running fat ground traces on either side of these signals.
However, in many other publications the trace width is represented by w, and spacing to adjacent ground traces is given by s (or gap width 9).
