Chapter 21 Summary: Terminator Type, Terminator Placement and Net Sequencing Your design needs terminations, but questions abound. How far can a series termination be from the output pin of the driver and still function as a series termination? Chapter 21 addresses the decision to use terminations and the trade-off between power consumption, system bus speed and the type of logic selected for the task at hand. The reader will learn the difference between series-terminated and parallel-terminated lines, as well as methods for implementing buried resistors as terminators and using series terminations on backplane buses.
