EE4609 Spring 2009 Homework #1 1) A 3 GHz clock signal is sent down an interconnect where the signal velocity is the speed of light in a vacuum (3 x 10 8 m/s). Using the risetime approximation discussed in section 1-7, determine the maximum interconnect length (in cm) that can be used without needing to include the effects of the interconnect on the signal waveshape. [Use the risetime/prop delay criteria discussed in class.] 2) A clock signal has a period of T = 0.3333 ns. Determine (a) the bandwidth occupied by the clock signal (in GHz) [use the criteria discussed in class], (b) the number of significant harmonics and (c) the frequency of the highest harmonic (in GHz). 3) An interconnect has an insertion loss versus frequency curve as shown below frequency (GHz) insertion loss (dB) 0 -3 10 If a digital signal with risetime 0.0333 ns is input into the interconnect, what is the risetime (in ns) of the signal emerging out the other end of the interconnect?
