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.”

10/29/2020 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
As Lawrence Romine said in his introduction, “There’s that moment when you sit in the crowd and hear Mr. Rick Hartley speak that you know you’ve arrived in PCB design.” With 50 years in the industry focused on circuit and PCB design—and as a specialist in EMI, noise, and signal integrity issues—Rick Hartley was invited to talk about PCB optimization. Pete Starkey provides an overview of the presentation.

Real Time with… AltiumLive Europe 2020: Eric Bogatin’s ‘Unlearning’ Keynote

10/27/2020 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
Pete Starkey admits to not being a Star Wars freak, but he was impressed by Yoda’s iconic wisdom and philosophy and intrigued by his advice that, “You must unlearn what you have learned.” Here, he describes how attending Dr. Eric Bogatin’s keynote at the AltiumLive Europe 2020 Virtual Summit was an enlightening experience.

Real Time with… AltiumLive: Eric Bogatin on Unlearning What You’ve Learned

10/16/2020 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
The second day of the virtual AltiumLive 2020 event got off to a great start with a class by Dr. Eric Bogatin. It was officially titled “You Must Unlearn What You’ve Learned,” but it could have just as easily been called “Designing Interconnect That Sucks Less.”
