Dear Team,

This is a general question.
May I know what are the things to be considered when designing VIAs for high speed design

Solution
Via impedance is typically specified for single ended wires, a single via embedded by plane copper. If you use two of this vias for your differential pair, they should have 50 ohm impedance each. But more likely the vias of a differential pair are closer together and not completely embedded by copper. Respectively the impedance is different.

Height. Width. Hole diameter. Plating thickness. Inductance. Capacitance. Impedance.
Thank you..
If I am designing the via for a 100ohm differential trace then the Via impedance must be 100ohm.Please correct
me if I am wrong

There's no thing like a "100 ohm via". Transmission lines have differential and common mode impedance. You are designing a differential transmission line.

Okay you mean entire transmission line inculding via should have an impedance of 100ohm.I am I correct
