Increasing data rates of high speed serial interfaces forces the insertion loss and common mode (CM) noise requirements to be tighter. This paper addresses both of these challenges by introducing a new low-loss transmission line design with simultaneous common mode filtering property. The line is composed of periodical repetitions of narrow and wide sections, which generates a CM impedance contrast to filter out the CM noise, while differential impedance is kept constant by locally voiding the planes below and above the wide trace sections. As a result of the wider sections, the loss is also smaller.
