Chapter 6 Summary: Transmission Lines What exactly do we mean by the term transmission line? Chapter 6 explains why any two conductors used to guide energy, in the form of an electromagnetic field, can be considered a transmission line. A PCB trace and one or two planes are transmission lines, as are coaxial cables, twisted pairs, waveguides and power lines. An understanding of transmission line theory is vital to proper high-speed design.
