Today many systems use serial data transfer techniques like serial AT attachment (SATA), Firewire and universal serial bus (USB). However, with parallel techniques the data transfer can be raised to a much higher speed. Having wires in parallel, one must also deal with phenomena such as crosstalk. To overcome crosstalk between parallel lines one must follow some design rules to avoid interference, like optimizing spaces between transmission lines. In this work simulations on high-speed single-ended and parallel channels utilizing microstrips and striplines have been done to show parameters that limit the channel bandwidth and thus the data rate. Design and simulations have been done using the Computer Aided Design (CAD) tool, Advanced Design System (ADS) provided by Agilent Technologies Inc. It is shown that both conductor surface roughness and dielectric loss will introduce extra AC noise to the signal. When having parallel conductors the AC noise increases with decreased rise/fall time, introduced by skin effect, conductor surface roughness and dielectric loss.
