Power Integrity (PI)

We propose optimizations for the power source and ground wiring, in order to ensure the stable operation of devices with higher speeds and lower voltage.

Background

Increased device speeds and reduced voltage has had an impact on signal integrity (SI), as well as noise from the power source and ground wiring, and on signal behavior. Design and analysis technologies for these phenomena are vital for optimization.

Features

  • PI and SI analysis, taking the power system into account when considerations of SI alone are insufficient
  • Analysis conducted in an environment integrating the board, package, and chip
  • Take more effective measures by visualizing power impedance and resonance characteristics
