Abstract: Power bus structure, consisting of two parallel solid power and ground planes separated by an insulator, behaves as a cavity resonator at high frequencies. Noise on the power bus, due to a sudden change in the current drawn by an active component, can appear as an undesired spatial fluctuation in the voltage between power and ground, especially at resonant frequencies of the resultant cavity, which may lead to problems in signal integrity, excessive delays, false switching, and radiated emission. These resonan…
