Overcome Power Integrity Design Challenges; free Hands-on Workshops Available 


PCB Power integrity (PI) analysis is an essential part of modern electronic design. The ever-increasing numbers of voltages used by ICs, in addition to dramatic increases in power consumption, make the challenges of improving power integrity an exceedingly difficult task. Compounding these challenges are reduced layer counts and finer pitch BGA footprints that perforate copper planes, making it difficult to supply DC voltage and current.


With inadequate power delivery, designs can exhibit seemingly intermittent signal integrity issues, which cause the logic on the board to fail. If power delivery is extremely poor, there can be complete part failure due to inadequate voltage and/or current resulting in a non-functional design.


Hardware engineers, PCB designers, and signal integrity specialists alike can use HyperLynx® PI and generate simulation results without weeks of software training. HyperLynx enables you to:

  • Improve power integrity by identifying power distribution problems early in the design, even prior to layout.
  • Detect problems with your design that would be difficult to spot in the lab
  • Investigate solutions in an easy-to-use what-if environment.

In this short video, Steve McKinney introduces the Mentor Graphics HyperLynx PI virtual lab environment, a free trial that gives you the opportunity to walk through three self-paced workshops to learn about various aspects of PI design.


The workshops are absolutely free and require no software installation, so head over to and try the virtual lab today. (4:30 mins).



Learn how IR (DC) drop analysis can lead to a more robust power system, allowing you to get to market faster and have confidence in your PCB design. (16:44 mins)  



Learn new design strategies for PCB decoupling analysis and how HyperLynx PI can help you achieve your power delivery design goals. (44:33 mins)
