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.”

The I-Connect Editorial Team recently spoke with Bob Williams, managing director of Pulsonix. He discussed some of the new features in the upcoming version of the Pulsonix PCB design tool, Version 12, including collision avoidance and other 3D options that allow certain MCAD functions within the ECAD environment.

A Textbook Look: Signal Integrity and Impedance

05/18/2022 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
Believing that I knew a bit about signal integrity and controlled impedance, I was pleased to take the opportunity to connect with an educational webinar that I hoped would extend my knowledge. In the event I was surprised at how little I actually knew, and the webinar was an excellent learning opportunity. The webinar was introduced and expertly moderated by Anna Brockman of Phoenix Contact in Germany.

Designing in a Vacuum Q&A: Carl Schattke

05/11/2022 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
Not long ago, I caught up with Carl Schattke, CEO of PCB Product Development LLC and a longtime PCB designer, for his thoughts on “designing in a vacuum.” As Carl points out, if you follow PCB design best practices, knowing the identity of your fabricator is not a “must-have.” He also offers some communication tips for discovering the information you do need, including one old-fashioned technique—just asking for it.
