Plated through-hole (PTH) vias are commonly used in printed circuit boards. They usually leave open stubs if the signal(s) does not transition the entire depth of the board. These open stubs can have a negative impact on signal transmission. This summary reports the investigation of the impact of the open via stubs in a typical backpanel design.
