Dear friends,

My backplane will run signals whose frequency ranges from
62.5MHz to 625MHz, and 4 daughter cards inserted each will
consumes 8A current of 3.3V. A whole PCB plane layer with 2oz Cu
will be used to provide this large current to each daughter
cards, that is the total current on backplane will be 4*8A
=32A, which is so large, I don't know how large and how many
Capacitances should be used on backplane to do decoupling.
Anyone can explain that to me?
thanks a lot.
