This article reports on parasitic resonance effects of a ground plane with/without a ground opening underneath a signal via with an open stub on the performance of a vertical transition in a multilayer printed circuit board. An equivalent circuit model that accounts for the parasitic resonance due to the open stub inductance and the parasitic capacitance is developed and verified with the measured and simulated results. The fabricated transition exhibits a return loss better than about 10 dB and an insertion loss less than 1.9 dB up to 21.5 GHz. A good agreement is observed between measured and simulated results.
