  • Publication number: 20070137890
    Abstract: A signal transmitting lead 105 is provided on an electrically insulating layer 103. Auxiliary leads 104A and 104B are provided while the auxiliary leads 104A and 104B are not in electrical contact with the signal transmitting lead 105. At least a part of the auxiliary leads 104A and 104B is covered with an electromagnetic shielding layer 106. Consequently, radiant noise from the inside or the outside of a printed wiring board can be suppressed without degrading characteristics of a signal which is transmitted through the signal transmitting lead 105.

  • Publication number: 20040211590
    Abstract: A multilayer printed wiring board of the present invention includes, e.g., an electrical insulating layer, a plurality of wiring layers arranged alternately with the electrical insulating layer, and a plurality of conductors passing through the electrical insulating layer in its thickness direction for electrically connecting the wiring layers. A plating layer is formed so as to cover the side of the electrical insulating layer and electrically connected to ground wiring. The impedance of a signal transmission conductor arranged in the edge portion of the electrical insulating layer is controlled by a ground conductor arranged opposite to the plating layer with this signal transmission conductor sandwiched between them and the plating layer.
