HyperLynx Power Integrity

HyperLynx Power Integrity

Accurately model power distribution networks and noise propagation mechanisms throughout the PCB design process

Overview

HyperLynx® PI identifies potential power integrity distribution issues that can interfere with board design logic, and investigate and validate solutions in an easy-to-use, “what-if” environment.

 

This intuitive tool gives any member of your design team the ability to quickly and accurately analyze power integrity, without the usual steep learning curve of most power analysis products.

 

Design team access to these sophisticated power integrity capabilities will help companies reduce prototype spins, shorten time to market, and allow engineers to develop more reliable products.
