I'm not an EE major, but I was curious what causes overshoot and undershoot.
Where can i find a detailed explanation of the process? I heard it has to do with the parasitic capacitance, but there were no details.
parasitic capacitance seems to have the effect of drawing more current into or out of the line, but i don't directly see how this would make a signal overshoot.
Also, how does an improperly terminated signal result in overshoot? If the signal is not properly absorbed and reflects backwards, I would expect some of the energy not to be transmitted into the receiver. Thus, if anything wouldn't this cause the voltage to undershoot because it doesn't receive as much power as it is expecting?
