the nearest planes are the ones you take as references for your impedance
calculation: the electromagnetic wave guided by your line is bounded by the
firsts planes it founds, and on them (it, in the case of a microstrip) induces
the return current.

You want a good decoupling among reference planes in order to have them AC-short
circuited, which minimize the mismatch (inductance) between a driver referenced
to a certain plane, a line referenced to another plane and/or a charge
referenced to another plane.

Hope this is useful.

Good luck,

Objet : [SI-LIST] : Reference plan


     Calculating line impedance take the distance of the trace from it
reference plan e.g. VCC,VDD, GND as one of the factor influencing the

     My questions are:

     1 Which Reference plan it is best to refer VCC,VDD,GND "?". What
are the factors I should take into consideration ?

     2 How to refer to a trace between 2 reference plan e.g. VDD, VCC
(not GND) ?

     3 Is there an educated article on that subject ?
