If you have two very long parallel conductors, the forward cross-talk does
not increase in amplitude after some point (saturation). Can anybody
enlighten me why this saturation happens?
I could think of one reason, that the amplitude on the aggressor line due to
crosstalk and other losses, reflective and absorptive, would decrease with
time and(Cross talk as you may know is greatly dependent and proportional
to the amplitude of the aggressor), on the other hand the gained voltage of
the victim line due to crosstalk increaases and becomes important enough
that it start acting as an aggressor itself and start a reverse relation by
crosstalking to the aggressor.
