A crucial first step of PCB design is simulation and virtual prototyping. The need to minimize re-spins and develop higher quality products at faster rates has caused many companies to turn to virtual prototyping and simulation.
- Perform design exploration and "What-If analysis" of board characteristics
- Terminator Wizard recommend optimal termination strategies.
- Perform signal integrity (SI) analysis
- Perform electromagnetic (EMI) analysis.
- Perform Thermal analysis.
This short video highlights how to utilize HyperLynx LineSim to discover and fix signal integrity issues as demonstrated in Shivani Joshi's unique webinar presentation, "Your PCB Designs Need SI Analysis & You Don’t Need to be an Expert!"
This short video highlights how to utilize HyperLynx BoardSim to discover and fix signal integrity issues. Including running the general batch wizard, including crosstalk analysis.
HyperLynx DRC provides fast, automated electrical design rule checking and supports iterative design inspection, nicely integrated with PADS Professional. Designers can run complex checks for problems that are not easily simulated, such as traces crossing splits, signal return path issues, and compliance with electrical safety requirements.
Analyzing signal integrity issues early in the desgin cycle ensures design performance and eliminates costly re-spins.download whitepaper
