Abstract : An internal grounding arrangement which minimizes output of current spikes by isolating the switching spikes from the input and output includes an arrangement of separate grounding planes for different functional groups of components, such as high current switching, low current switching and input/output components, with RF chokes and a single conductor line. The RF chokes and single conductor provide electrical isolation between the grounding planes of these different functional groups of components.
