I was attempting to get familiar with the Texas Instruments CDCE62002. While checking the datasheet of the evaluation module, I came across the following indicator in the schematic. I'm curious about the dashed line which is visible. For a full view of the schematic please check page 11 of the EVM datasheet
Reasons I could think of why they did this:
- I am overthinking a random scribbly line
- They want these ground points to be as close together as possible? (if this is the case, why would you place such information inside a schematic instead of a pcb layout/guidelines section)
TL;DR: Why is there a dashed line connecting grounds in this schematic?
