Simultaneous switching noise (SSN) is one of the major bottlenecks for successful design of high-performance systems. Especially, mixed-signal designs are very sensitive to the SSN due to the low voltage levels applied in analog circuits. Electromagnetic band-gap (EBG) structures have been successfully applied for isolation. EBG structures have to be small, since the total package or board area is a major concern especially in portable devices. In this paper we show how to scale such EBG structures to obtain compact sizes suitable for integration in a package using materials with high dielectric constants.
