Connectors are an integral part of any electronic system, allowing multiple parts of one system to interconnect. However, they represent a discontinuity, and this discontinuity causes reflections, differential-to-common-mode conversion and radiation. All these phenomena are more intense at higher frequencies and they can significantly distort the transmitted signal which leads to the reduction of transmission speed/bitrate.
Milan Prihoda received the M.Sc. and Ph.D degrees from the Czech Technical University in Prague, in 2010 and 2016, respectively. In the Institute of Photonics and Electronics in Prague he dealt with the development of devices for the measurement of very weak radiofrequency and optical signals. He is interested in techniques for precise microwave measurement . Since 2014 he is with CST - Computer Simulation Technology as an application engineer.
