PCB Investigation and Performance Estimation on the PDN: Optimization and Simulation Strategies

#emc #SIPI #PowerIntegrity #PDN #PCB #Optimization

Using a simple example, in this talk we will present a way to design, check  and optimize a Power Distribution Network (PDN) through a simple optimization method. The full process aims at verifying if the overall performance is still valid till the end-of-life of the product, especially taking care of the impact of capacitance aging.
