PCB Transmission Line Quiz

<h1>PCB Transmission Line Quiz</h1> post thumbnail image

A PCB transmission line is a type of interconnection used for moving signals from their transmitters to their receivers on a printed circuits board. They are very complex to understand, which is why we created this quiz. Find out how much you know about PCB transmission lines!



Congratulations, you know a lot about PCB transmission lines! Why don’t you give us your feedback on our PCB Transmission Line eBook?

It looks like you still have one thing or two to learn about PCB transmission lines! download our PCB Transmission Line eBook and take the quiz again. You will definitely pass this time!


#1 How many conductors a PCB transmission line is usually composed of?


#2 What are usually these conductors?


#3 What is the volume between the two conductors?


#4 Why do transmission lines need to have a controlled impedance at high frequencies?


#5 Electromagnetic signals travel in vacuum or air at the same speed as of light. Why do signals travel on PCB transmission lines at a slower speed?


#6 What does “tpd” refer to?


#7 What is the propagation delay?


#8 What is approximately the signal speed for Isola 370HR materials on a stripline?


#9 What is approximately the propagation delay for Rogers 4000 series materials on a microstrip?

    unfortunately I could not see the pictures on firefox on linux. Thus I could not answer two questions. But fun it was

      Sorry about that and thanks!

    Broken link? There is no button to click to start the quiz, that I could find. The closest thing was this cryptic text between the text below the picture and the two links to other articles:
    [HDquiz quiz = "772"]

    Is that supposed to be a button?

    Of course, specially Low voltage signal lines! It needs low resistance passage way point to point!

    Three different browsers – none of them able to load your quiz (Chrome/Firefox/IE)

      Sorry about that, our quiz plugin was down. It’s working again! 🙂

    I got 8 of 9 right — but I have an issue with #1. The transmission line itself is 1 conductor — the return path is a second conductor.

    I got 9/9
