Then... Could someone please tell me (any guidance is appreciated) in
layman's terms how I "might" route the differential traces, #1 using
microstrip; and #2 doing it stripline. I'm working a board with GETEK
material, it has a couple .1mm BGAs and many, many, many differential
pairs. I've done some preliminary calcs (using Polar Instr. CITS
software), and come up with .008" lines with .008 spacing and .024"
spacing between the pairs, routing on the microstrip layers. I'd like to
go smaller, and possibly decrease the dielectric to the plane layer, but
I've heard there "might be" crosstalk problems. Anyone?
I'm especially interested in routing these on stripline layers, but I've
heard that's not a good practice either. Help?
"This is just the beginning..."
Thanks for all your help.
