Hi Rede,

Thanks for your mail.

Here is the info of my topology.

1. Clock Frequency: 66MHz
2. Clock Amplitude : 3.3V
3. Type of Driver : LVTTL
4. Number of Drops : 6
5. Z0 of trace : 50 ohms
6. Length of each link : 3 inches
7. Type of inputs : LVTTL

thanks in advance.

  Hi Selva,
  I may be able to help you with your daisy-chain design.
  I have done a lot of work with this topology and know a few tricks.
  Please give me the following details:
  1) Clock Frequency _______________
  2) Clock Amplitude________________
  3) Type of Driver__________________
  4) Number of Drops________________
  5) Zo of trace_____________________
  6) Length of Each Link_____________
  7) Type of Inputs__________________
  Once I have this data, I will be able to tell what may work.
  Best Regards,

    Subject: [SI-LIST] : Daisy Chain topology - termination schemes

    Hello all,

    My simulations using XTK for most of the daisy chain topology is showing non-monotonicity on both the edges of the data/signal. I tried different termination strategies to remove the kink. But couln't.

    What I saw was that the worst affected load is the first load from the driver?

    Suggest me how to remove the non-monotonicity while using the daisy chain topology and is it ok if I bring that kink within the threshold levels.

    thanks in advance.
