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.
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 http://go.mentor.com/hl-vlab/ and try the virtual lab today. (4:30 mins).
