eCADSTAR POWER INTEGRITY AND EMI ANALYSIS
Power integrity (PI) and EMI issues sometimes only reveal themselves right at the end of testing – or even worse, in the field. Causes can be subtle, but you can avoid a lot of PI and EMI trouble with eCADSTAR Power Integrity and EMI Analysis.
The methods used for analysis are solidly based on the work of the EMC Expert system consortium.
TOP BENEFITS. WHY WOULD YOU NEED PI AND EMI ANALYSIS?
- It is easy to miss a serious power integrity or EMI issue. This can be as simple as using the wrong kind of via to take power from one layer to another or as subtle as a local resonance that stops I/O getting enough switching power. Analysis can be as shallow or deep as you wish. Even the most straightforward DC analysis often throws up a surprise.
- For effective design reviews, you need evidence. PI and EMI analysis produce results you can present in a consistent way.
- More and more PCBs are mixed-technology and that means careful power distribution. RF connectivity, controllers and noise-sensitive analog I/O need careful design to coexist on a PCB.
There is much, much more you can do with the rich set of features in eCADSTAR PI and EMI analysis than there is room to describe here. All of it helps you optimize the electrical performance of your PCBs, making them more reliable and less prone to unforeseen glitches. Our engineers would love to show you how, so why not ask for a demonstration?
