ACCURATE AND EFFICIENT ANALYSIS OF PLANAR ELECTROMAGNETIC BAND-GAP STRUCTURES FOR POWER BUS NOISE MITIGATION IN THE GHZ BAND

Abstract:
Noise reduction in PCB is a major concern in the present digital electronic systems with data rate beyond 10 Gbps. The noise, due to simultaneous switching noise, radiation from signal vias crossing the planes, etc. can propagate within parallel plane cavity at its resonant frequencies, thus allowing coupling between integrated circuits (ICs) far from each other. Electromagnetic band-gap (EBG) structures are largely employed as noise reduction technique. This paper presents a quick and efficient analytical approach for evaluating the EBG noise reduction performances in terms of band-gap limits. The study is based on the physics behavior of the planar EBG structures, focusing on its resonant properties. The resonant modes of the EBG cavity are affected by the additional inductance of the patterned plane respect to the case of the ideal solid plane cavity. The formulas provided, based on the quantification of such inductance, can be easily implemented and employed for a quick layout design of power planes in multilayer PCBs, as shown in a practical example of a partial EBG plane.
