Differential Signaling Is the Opiate of the Masses
A large concern with the proliferation of differential signalling is the false sense of security that comes along with its usage. Differential signals are hailed for their immunity to noise coupling and for their propagation characteristics. Differential receivers have great common mode rejection, and with equalization, receivers can pull meaningful signals out of a closed eye diagram. But with all of these benefits, the often forgotten drawback is that differential signals on PCBs are not truly differential and they do not perfectly cancel. The various asymmetries in the routing of the differential pair and the impedance discontinuities of vias and connectors and the imbalance and skew of the drivers all create a common mode signal on the differential pair that can cause serious EMC problems when coupled to other nets or radiated from cables and connectors.
