Renesas Electronics Corporation (TSE:6723), a premier supplier of advanced semiconductor solutions, has developed a design technology achieving improved signal transmission speeds and also achieving three times the signal wiring density of earlier Renesas products by combining multiple types of distributed impedance matching circuits in three dimensions in an ordinary ball grid array (BGA) type package substrate. The purpose of this technology is to prevent the degradation of signal waveforms that occurs due to impedance differences (also referred to as impedance mismatch) between integrated circuits and the printed circuit boards on which they are mounted.
