------------------------------------------------------------------------------ MASSACHUSETTS INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY± Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science± Problem Set No. 7 6.630 Electromagnetics Issued: Fall Term 2006 Due: Reading assignment : Section 2.3, 2.5; J. A. Kong, “ Electromagnetic Wave Theory ”. Problem P7.1 Digital systems on printed circuit boards often incorporate source terminations instead of load terminations to minimize the dissipated power and to reduce the magnitude of prop- agating voltage waveforms. Consider the digital system in the figure. The driver is modeled by a voltage source V s = 1 V and a source resistance R s = 25 Ω . The transmission line has a characteristic impedance Z 0 = 100 Ω and a propagation velocity v = c/ 2 = 1 . 5 10 8 m/s · due to the geometry and dielectric constant of the the printed circuit board. Digital re- ceivers often have very low input capacitance so that the load can be modeled as an open circuit in the frequency range of interest. The source termination is implemented by inserting a series resistance R 1

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
