What You’ll Learn

  • Create and simulate a Power Distribution Network (PDN) in LineSim®
  • Set up and run DC Drop Power Analysis in LineSim and BoardSim®
  • Set up and run Decoupling Analysis in LineSim and BoardSim
  • Evaluate the results of different types of analysis and identify the potential hot spots in PowerScope, and TouchStone Viewer.
  • Modify the PDN to fix the potential problems.
  • Explore design PDN methodologies.

Throughout this course, extensive hands-on lab exercises provide you with practical experience using HyperLynx PI software. Hands-on lab topics include:

  • Using the LineSim PDN editor to create board outlines and shapes, add pins for representing power sources/sinks on a PCB, and assign models to the pins for what-if pre-layout DC Drop Analysis
  • Performing DC Drop analysis in LineSim, evaluating the analysis results, identifying the potential problems, making appropriate modifications, and validating the modifications through re-simulating
  • Deriving and assigning models to the board’s IC power supply pins in BoardSim and simulating the design for interactive and batch post-layout DC Drop Analysis
  • Using PowerScope graphical tool to view DC voltage drop plots, current density/distribution on the board’s various power planes
  • Using the LineSim PDN editor and decoupling analysis wizard to explore how decoupling capacitors and board stack-up affect the impedance of a power distribution network in pre- and post-layout simulations.
  • Evaluating the impedance profile of a PDN in the TouchStone Viewer.
  • Exploring various methodologies for designing a PDN
