Document Table of Contents Termination Design Example

When designing a circuit board, one challenge is determining the type of termination to use and where to place it. This section helps you determine the type of termination needed and the best possible location for your custom board design.

If transmission lines associated with data or clock circuitry are not terminated properly, the signal experiences reflections. In this example, the design has the following features:

In this design example, you need to determine if the transmission line should be terminated, and if so, how it should be accomplished.
