Signal Integration Testing (SIT) There are five methods for determining the amount of signal propagation loss caused by material characteristics of conductors and accompanying structures on printed boards. These losses result in frequency dependent attenuation, α, as described in IPC-2141. Four of these methods to assess this loss are time domain based, and one is frequency domain (FD) based. These methods are:

• Method A: Effective Bandwidth (EBW) method
• Method B: Root Impulse Energy (RIE) method
• Method C: Short Pulse Propagation (SPP) method
• Method D: Single-Ended TDR to Differential Insertion Loss (SET2DIL) method
• Method E: Frequency Domain (FD) method
