Hi Lee,

Our simulation results suggest that, while these stitching vias have no 
discernable effect on signal integrity at the receiver at these speeds, they do 
noticeably affect electromagnetic emissions from the PCB edges, potentially 
threatening electromagnetic compliance testing failure, when they are omitted. 
And I was wondering if you have any experimental findings, in this regard, that 
you can share.
