Power integrity is one of the biggest problems in electronic product design. Modern ICs, digital and analog alike, require multiple supply voltages to operate. Gain insights into effective design techniques and strategies to optimize power delivery networks, manage thermal considerations, and enhance overall PCB performance.
Every modern electronic design includes a Power Distribution Network (PDN) with two critical and equally important purposes:-
When a PDN fails to meet these goals, the design can fail to operate at intended performance levels, or even worse, fail intermittently and unpredictably. Poorly designed PDNs can create current and thermal stresses that exceed physical material limits, causing the PCB or ICs to burn out prematurely.
Hardware engineers, PCB designers, and signal integrity specialists alike can use HyperLynx PI to predict PDN performance quickly, without requiring weeks of training. HyperLynx PI identifies power distribution problems early in the design cycle, even prior to layout. Designers identify problems that would be difficult to isolate in the lab, investigating potential solutions using an interactive “what-if” environment. Once layout is complete, HyperLynx PI completely validates PDN behaviour as part of electrical sign-off. HyperLynx PI lets you eliminate prototype spins and get to market faster, while creating more reliable and cost-effective designs.
