Abstract

Connectors and Pin Grid Arrays provide high signal density but offer little help in controlling crosstalk and impedance. A review of the basic causes of crosstalk is presented and current connector technologies which address the problems of crosstalk and impedance control are examined. A new method for controlling both crosstalk and impedance with only a minor reduction of signal density is proposed.
