App note: Understanding and Minimizing Ground Bounce
Another old app note from Fairchild on Ground Bounce issues.
This entry was posted in app notes and tagged app note, Fairchild, ground bounce noise.
Ground bounce has been a concern to some system designers for many years. Its effects can be found in most bipolar and CMOS logic families. However, ground bounce has recently become a major issue. Although new advanced CMOS logic families have edge rates comparable to advanced bipolar logic devices, CMOS outputs swing almost from rail to rail while bipolar outputs swing from ground to approximately 3.0V. These edge rates, coupled with the greater voltage swings found in today’s advanced CMOS logic devices, tend to generate more ground bounce noise than their bipolar counterparts.
