A Generalized Transmission Line Equation (GTLE) is modeled for studying the effect of Ground Bounce (GB) in high-speed digital circuits. The trace/ground configuration is modeled by a 'local wave' concept. The GB effect is characterized in this modeling as a function of various PCB parameters, and simulation results confirm that GB is induced because of the resonant behavior.
