I was taking a look at my motherboard, and I noticed the above traces on the USB 3.0 ports. A bit of prior research:
- The C34WH IC is probably a SN74LVC2G34 Dual Buffer Gate.
- Unclear what chip the top two ICs are, but the markings likely read 1188J.
What is the purpose of making these traces like this?
How is the appropriate shape of the traces calculated?
