Dear SI engineers,

Does any one among you have any RF circuit experience? Does it help
directly while you are trying to solve SI issues and designing digital
CMOS circuit(especially I/O cells)? How closely correlated are the RF
concept and SI issues, only the transmission line theory? In RF, the
phaseshift and diversifying groupdelay and VSWR ...etc that caused by
the PCB trace is often mentioned, can these be also applied to SI issues
in digital world? If yes, how? If no , why? I would like to hear your
voices.
