I was reading about series termination in high speed digital circuits -(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A series termination comprises a resistor between the driver's output and the line . The sum of the output impedance of the driver, RD, and the resistor value, R, must equal Z0. With this type of termination, only one-half the signal value appears on the line because of the voltage division between the line and the combination of the series resistor and the driver's impedance.

I can't understand how the voltage divides between the transmission line and the series resistor.
