17.2. Lossy Transmission Lines218
The signal integrity of high-speed signals via transmission lines is dependent on the frequency-related signal and dispersion losses of the transmission lines. Signal power loss is attributed to the increase in conductor resistance (skin effect) and the increase in dielectric conductance (dielectric loss) with an increase in frequency. Dispersion is the distortion of the signal wave shape resulting from delays introduced ...
