some parts may be on-chip terminated and you may have no choice but to use
Also - You drivers' current sourcing/sinking capability, your backplane traces'
impedances (if any) that you have to match to.
YOur board density - how wide your wires can be; your allowed stackup (same
Also - what you are comfortable with. If it is digital not so hi-speed signal
schematic (up to hundred megs) - and you have someething like 50 Ohm target
impedance- your 60 Ohm one will not (or may not) create so much reflection that
you have to worry about it ( the difference may be within tolerance), so I
would not loose a night's sleep over this in such a case.
