[SI-LIST] Re: Stack up for EMI reduction, plane resonance and u-strip radiation etc etc

Nanda, what you want to do is route orthogonally on layer 3 to layer 4.  If 
you have tandem ( parallel ) traces on the two layers, you can estimate the 
crosstalk based on the lateral spacing and lamda / 6 that results from the 
tandem length.
