Define Propagation Delay
The definition of propagation delay is the amount of time it takes for an electrical signal to travel from one pin to another on a circuit board. Propagation delay needs to be considered when you are designing a circuit board because you want to make sure each signal is functioning properly. High-speed circuit board designs make routing a board even more tricky. Fortunately, there is software available that makes it not only easy to route connections but also to manage all of your components and signals.
Altium Designer is simple but powerful PCB design software. From start-to-finish, you can use this one design space to design your schematic and send detail-rich fabrication documents to the manufacturer. Altium Designer empowers designers to manage:
The definition of the signals that need high-speed design applied to the them
The dimensions and properties of PCB materials
The multiple layers in a layer stack
Configuring and controlling the route lengths
