In this paper, a novel concept for ultra-wideband simultaneous switching noise (SSN) mitigation in high-speed printed circuit boards (PCBs) is proposed. Using complementary spiral resonators (CSRs) etched on only a single layer of the power plane and cascaded co-centrically around the noise port, ultra-wideband SSN suppression by 30 dB is achieved in a frequency span ranging from 340 MHz to beyond 10 GHz. By placing a slit in the co-centric rings, lower cut-off frequency is reduced to 150 MHz, keeping the rest of the structure unaltered. Finally, the power plane structure with modified complementary spiral resonators (MCSRs) is designed, fabricated, and evaluated experimentally. Measurement and simulation results are in well-agreement.
