Abstract

The cascaded transmission line theory of Paul and McKnight is used in this paper to predict near-end crosstalk (NEXT) and far-end crosstalk (FEXT) in a bundle of twisted wire pairs. The approach is validated using the CST Cable Studio commercial software and experimental data. NEXT and FEXT along twisted pair bundles are then evaluated using a pure deterministic approach for the electromagnetic coupling while taking into account the random distribution of victim and aggressor pairs in the bundle. The results obtained using the presented approach are compared with available simplified empirical expressions (ANSI/FSAN). It is shown that the simplified expressions are able to predict the overall trend of the power sum loss. However, they do not always provide the worst case values. The presented theory can find important applications in the design of data transmission systems for which accurate crosstalk modeling is a vital task. It can be used for example as a replacement for the experiments in obtaining the parameters of simplified models for NEXT and FEXT.

Twisted pair

Twisted pair cabling is a type of wiring used for communications in which two conductors of a single circuit are twisted together for the purposes of improving electromagnetic compatibility. Compared to a single conductor or an untwisted balanced pair, a twisted pair reduces electromagnetic radiation from the pair and crosstalk between neighbouring pairs and improves rejection of external electromagnetic interference. It was invented by Alexander Graham Bell. For additional noise immunity, twisted-pair cabling may be shielded.

Probability distribution

In probability theory and statistics, a probability distribution is the mathematical function that gives the probabilities of occurrence of different possible outcomes for an experiment. It is a mathematical description of a random phenomenon in terms of its sample space and the probabilities of events (subsets of the sample space). For instance, if X is used to denote the outcome of a coin toss ("the experiment"), then the probability distribution of X would take the value 0.5 (1 in 2 or 1/2) for X = heads, and 0.

Ratio distribution

A ratio distribution (also known as a quotient distribution) is a probability distribution constructed as the distribution of the ratio of random variables having two other known distributions. Given two (usually independent) random variables X and Y, the distribution of the random variable Z that is formed as the ratio Z = X/Y is a ratio distribution. An example is the Cauchy distribution (also called the normal ratio distribution), which comes about as the ratio of two normally distributed variables with zero mean.
