Abstract:
This work presents a novel design for high-impedance surface (HIS) embedded dielectric resonator (DR) structures to efficiently control bandwidth of suppressing simultaneous switching noise (SSN) in high speed digital printed circuit boards (PCBs). The proposed structure is designed by periodically embedding high dielectric constant materials into the substrate between a continuous power plane and a middle patch. A conventional HIS structure has only one resonance frequency to produce stopband while the proposed structure has two resonances to widen the suppression bandwidth. The -30 dB stopband of the proposed structure is about two times wider than that of a conventional HIS structure. The excellent SSN suppression behavior was verified by measurements and simulations.
