After a brief introduction of 3D full wave simulation, the speaker will use seven example cases of practical interest to illustrate the importance of full-wave electromagnetic simulation for high-speed packages. These seven cases are:
- a single trace over a slotted plane
- a single trace over a ground plane with a hole
- effects of long via stubs
- placement of signal and ground vias
- a trace on a lossy substrate
- effects of plating tails on signal integrity
- full wave extraction of power/ground planes
For each of the example cases, a quantitative guideline on when a 3D full-wave tool is required will be presented.
