PROBLEM SET 2 ECE 311 Autumn Quarter 2011 Assigned: Friday, Sep. 30th Due: Friday, Oct. 7th in class Instructor: Joel T. Johnson Problem 1 A circuit board is being designed to include traces for carrying USB 2.0 signals. USB cables have a 90 Ohm characteristic impedance, so it is desired to design 90 Ohm microstrip lines for the board. The circuit board has a thickness of 0.16 mm and a dielectric constant of 3.9. The traces of the line are “perfectly conducting” (i.e. ± ² ³ ), and loss in the circuit board can be neglected. (a) Design the width of the trace to create a 90 ohm characteristic impedance. (b) Calculate the wavelength of 500 MHz signals on this line. (c) How long does it take signals to travel down the line if the line is 8 cm long? (d) If the conductors of the line are now considered to be made of copper ( ± ² ´µ¶ · ¸¸¸¸¸¸¹º » ¼ ½ ± ² ½ ¾ ) while the dielectric medium is still taken as lossless, find the attenuation constant of this line in dB/m at 500 MHz. If 4 dB of attenuation is
