As supply voltages continue to decrease and power consumption increases, impedance of power delivery networks at DC and over frequency has become a critical consideration for any electronic package or PCB design.
Using simulation to identify potential power integrity problems such as DC voltage drop and frequency response is essential for today’s high-speed digital designs. By using Ansys’ SIwave software, Freedom CAD Services has the ability to perform pre-layout power integrity analysis and reduce post–layout power delivery problems. This includes optimization of copper weights, bulk storage and bypass capacitor selection.
“We are pleased to be able to offer PCB engineering and layout solutions to our customers that can include Power Integrity and Voltage Drop analysis.” says Don Duncan, Chief Technology Officer at Freedom CAD Services. “It’s becoming increasingly important to understand and predict the potential impact of power integrity and voltage drop in the sensitive electronic products that we frequently design. I only see this importance growing as the design complexities grow across our projects from wearable devices to terabyte computers.”
