Power Integrity & EMI
Power Integrity & EMI
Causes can be subtle, but you can avoid a lot of PI and EMI trouble with eCADSTAR Power Integrity and EMI Analysis.
What is Power Integrity & EMI?
Fast EMC Verification
- Fast EMC noise source identification with what-if capabilities.
- Complete board EMC screening, worst case EM emission prediction.
- Based on an industry-accepted R&D approach (UMR EMC Expert System Consortium).
- Fast algorithms to analyze: Differential Mode Radiation (DM), Common Mode Radiation (CM), and Power Bus Noise (PB).
- Display heatmap style EMI estimation results directly on eCADSTAR PCB Editor canvas.
Power Integrity - DC Analysis
- Numerical frequency-domain solver (2.5D approach) for DC and IR-Drop analysis with user-controlled meshing density.
- Allows analysis of arbitrary/irregular PWR/GND shapes.
- DC voltages, IR-Drop, and Current Density.
DC Simulation - IC Power Pin Voltage and PDS via Currents
- Computation of the max current and the voltage drops of the PDN via’s.
- Identify problematic vias, and define thresholds for the maximum current flow allowed.
- Parametric studies on PDN vias for what-if analyses.
- Integration and cross-probing into eCADSTAR main canvas (2D/3D) pinpoints to critical board areas.
- Calculation of the DC resistance (DC-R analysis) allows verification of IC manufacturer specifications.
Power Integrity - AC Analysis
- Numerical power integrity solver for AC analysis.
- Frequency Domain Target Impedance Analysis (FDTIM).
- Decoupling analysis.
- Parametric studies to optimize board decoupling.
- Add virtual decoupling capacitors at user-defined board positions.
- Impedance distribution display for user-selected frequencies (heatmap style display on PCB Editor canvas).
- Cross probe result diagrams and pin-locations between PI/EMI Analysis tool and PCB Editor.
