  • Identify potential power integrity distribution issues
  • Investigate and validate solutions in an easy-to-use, “what-if” environment
  • Reduce prototype spins, shorten time to market, and allow engineers to develop more reliable products

Analyze voltage drop

Model multiple DC supplies to identify areas where voltage drop and current densities exceed safe limits.

PDN impedance validation

Quickly model your distributed PDN to assess the impedance seen by critical components, validating your design against manufacturer specifications.

Optimize PDN behavior

The PDN Decoupling Optimizer automatically determines the best locations and values for decoupling capacitors. Reduce your design’s manufacturing cost while ensuring PDN impedance requirements are met.
