Propagation Delay Definition
The definition of propagation delay is the amount of time electrical energy takes for a signal to travel from the sender to the receiver. Propagation delay is particularly significant to high-speed PCB designers because errors in design can affect signal integrity and ultimately the success of your PCB.
Altium Designer 18 is modern, powerful PCB design software that increases your chance of designing an error-free board. AD18 not only helps you manage the propagation delay for your circuits, it also gives you tools to check for:
Bit error rate
Simultaneous switching noise
By allowing you to verify your concepts before going to layout, you can save precious design time and money. Now you know the definition of propagation delay and how you can use AD18’s simulation features to check the signal integrity of your design.
