Trying to understand signal propagation concepts and getting lost in electromagnetics? Here is an easy way to learn the signal degradation effects by literally looking at the fields and currents. This interactive session is intended to introduce some basic concepts of the interconnect behavior through the power of 3D visualization and animation of electromagnetic fields, currents and power flow densities. You will learn how to use the field visualization to understand where the currents and power flow in uniform interconnects, what happens if reference conductors are compromised and how traces and viaholes become coupled.
