Crosstalk not only appears between multiple parallel lines, but also
between vias. Our recent study shows that electromagnetic coupling between
vias is often as significant as or sometimes even more significant than
the coupling between parallel traces. A signal integrity software tool is
better to be able to accurately model the coupling between multiple lines,
vias, as well as the voltage fluctuations in the power and ground supply
systems.
