11.1 Layout Guidelines
To ensure reliability of the device, the following common printed-circuit board layout guidelines are recommended:
- Bypass capacitors should be used on power supplies and should be placed as close as possible to the VCCA, VCCB pin, and GND pin.
- Short trace lengths should be used to avoid excessive loading.
- PCB signal trace-lengths must be kept short enough so that the round-trip delay of any reflection is less than the one-shot duration, approximately 30 ns, ensuring that any reflection encounters low impedance at the source driver.
