Hello all,
 I had a doubt regarding plane splits:

 In the stackup, if there is a power plane on one side of the signal
layer and a ground plane on the other side of the signal layer(symmetric
stripline config), and if the ground plane is a solid ground plane
having no discontinuities, then can I have splits in the power plane and
run traces over the splits? Is the ground plane alone not sufficient to
provide paths for return currents?

With regards,
Aloke
