A digital signal reflection attenuation device is connected to a receiving end of a transmission line and contains a reflection attenuator connected between the signal line and the ground line, and also the signal line and the supply line. The attenuator clamps the voltage of digital signals between ground potential and the supply line voltage. Thus, even with a characteristic impedance mismatch between the transmission line and the receiver, accurate digital signals can be transmitted to the receiver.
