My knotty question concerns the possible application of transmission
theory to this domain of SHORT interconnect length in relation to the
time, unterminatable load, and 'current source' complex Z driver.
This configuration may not be the optimum for my requirements and am
to optimize both the single-layer interconnect Zo and the driver(which
up to be a current driver after the rise/fall time transitions).
One as aspect is reflections and the other is optimum current rise time
Since I will have two down and back reflections from my 'high impedance'
load (during the rise/fall times)with diminishing intensity, i probably
even see reflection effects??? (so i don't need be concerned about
Fast current transmission:
Will classical transmission line theory apply here - to the rise/fall
'If source or load is terminated in Zo of the line, a lossless line
purely resistive'. Therefore, make the current driver look like Zo
the transitions,and like a current source thereafter.
Is this 'hybrid' approach the optimum ??
Am i now not concerned so much about longer interconnects,
since i am matched during the critical timeframe??
Thanks and regards,
