Freedom CAD offers Power Integrity Analysis


Reading time ( words)

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.”

My Experience With Maxwell

11/23/2022 | Happy Holden, I-Connect007
I was first introduced to James Maxwell in 1967 as a college student. I had to decide whether I would take the Maxwell fields course or the switching and coding course. Being a chemical engineering major with a co-major in control theory, I had heard about the trials and tribulations of the infamous Maxwell fields course.

Sunstone’s Matt Stevenson Shares Insights From New PCB Design Book

10/27/2022 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
There’s designing the “perfect” circuit board and then there’s designing a board that is “perfect for manufacturing.” While seasoned designers and design engineers understand many of the nuances, PCB fabricator Sunstone Circuits has just published a new book specifically for new designers who have the knowledge of design but are still learning what it means to get the board manufactured. Sunstone’s Matt Stevenson takes the reader through a series of situations that should help clarify what’s happening in the fabrication process and how to adjust a board design to be better suited for manufacturing.

HDI, A-SAP and mSAP: A Designer’s Point of View

10/26/2022 | Cherie Litson, CID+, Litson1 Consulting
HDI—high-density interconnect—designs require some different thinking on the part of the designer. One of the first things to consider is whether you need HDI, and if so, how much. The HDI option comes into play as soon as you purchase any components with 0.5 mm pin pitch. The number of these components and other specifications of your design will determine the amount of HDI you will need. Here’s a quick list of HDI options.
