Ground plane connection to DC supply ground - RF Cafe Forums

Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

Post subject: Ground plane connection to DC supply ground
Unread postPosted: Wed Mar 30, 2005 5:33 pm

I am using terminal block connectors to bring DC power to my circuit operating at 1GHz, the +ve terminal will attach to a PCB trace to provide biasing through RF chokes to an amplifier and the -ve terminal will simply attach to the ground plane, (its a double sided PC board). Will connecting the power supply ground to the PCB ground plane in one location be enough?

Check Motorola application notes - they often have complete designs for emulation.

Good Luck!
