Grounding in mixed-signal systems demystified, Part 1
This paper is the first of a two-part series that looks closely at the grounding techniques used in mixed-signal systems. Part 1 explains typical terminologies and ground planes and introduces partitioning methods. Part 2 explores techniques for splitting the ground planes, including pros and cons. It also explains grounding in systems with multiple converters and multiple boards.
