Polygon decomposition in to minimum number of primitives and electromagnetic shielding using composite materials

Keywords and Phrases

Mixing theory; Polygon decomposition


"Power planes in high-speed printed circuit boards involve supplying large transient currents to the entire board. In the past these power plane shapes were modeled as lumped inductors or inductive networks. The power bus planes behave as cavity resonators supporting radial waves that propagate between these power bus planes. Closed form expressions for evaluating the impedance matrices of regular shapes, like rectangles and triangles, are available. However, impedance matrices for the irregular power plane shapes are evaluated using the closed-form expression for the impedance matrix for the rectangular plane pairs and the right angled triangular plane pairs. A tool which extracts information about the power plane shape and then divides this shape in to a minimum number of rectangles and triangles is being proposed"--Abstract, page iii.
