Chapter 6. The Physical Basis of Inductance

Inductance is a critically important electrical property because it affects all four of the fundamental signal-integrity problems. Inductance plays a role in signal propagation for uniform transmission lines as a discontinuity, in the coupling between two signal lines, in the power-distribution network, and in EMI.

In many cases, the goal will be to decrease inductance, such as the mutual inductance between signal paths for reduced switching noise, the loop inductance in the power-distribution network, and the effective inductance of return planes for EMI. In other cases, the goal may be to optimize the inductance, as in achieving a target characteristic impedance.

By understanding the basic types of inductance ...
