Matching between differential pairs and single-ended signals
. In this case, you almost invariably need to add length to the pair, not the single-ended signal
Everything we ever wanted to know about how a single-ended signal
interacts with these two single-ended lines is contained in the four-port S parameters.
The discovery that air can be used as a dielectric between adjacent conductors, instead of heavy metal shields, has improved the performance of connectors to the point where one connector can accommodate 63 differential pairs or 95 single-ended signal
lines per inch for a 25-mm card slot.
IBIS drivers are specified for the 16 single-ended signal
nets with signal sources at the mounted device U17 on the top of the board.
Just as with a single-ended signal
, the impedance the difference signal sees must be constant along its path, or the signal will suffer reflections and the received signal will be distorted.
Differential circuitry also avoids the single-ended signal
corruption caused when imperfect PCB layouts allow ground current mixing.
In this example, an active single-ended signal
is driven on the aggressor line, and the saturated differential near end cross talk is calculated on the quiet pair We will keep the spacing between the aggressor and one line of the differential pair fixed and change the coupling between the two lines in the victim pair The differential pair is 5 mil wide with a 100-ohm differential impedance.
* Keep the associated power and ground pins close to any single-ended signal
pins to reduce the size of the signal loop.
Note that it is never a good idea to try to slow or filter a single-ended signal
by impeding the flow of current in the return path.
However, in some cases, both lines are held at the same voltage to generate a single-ended signal
. For example, if both D+ and D- are held low, a so-called single-ended zero results that can indicate a device reset if held for more than 10 ms.
It has local, temperature-controlled references that ensure the highest DC stability over time, and single-ended signals
can be referenced to a ground sense per channel to achieve high fidelity.
can pose even more of a crosstalk threat than other differential signals.
