Using Mentor Graphics Xtreme PCB and HyperLynx PI, PFU Limited reported savings in development time of up to 65%.
“Concurrent design is an indispensable tool for the faster design cycle time. We are aiming to further strengthen our competitiveness through automation. ”
PFU Faced two challenges: Strike a careful balance between Quality and Cost, and be able to deliver coincident with a major chip architecture announcement. A re-spin was not an option.
HyperLynx PI was used to assure the design would work the first time and help reduce cost. Expedition Enterprise flow and XtremePCB allowed multiple designers to work concurrently, enabling them to meet their deadline.
PFU Limited successfully reduced up to 65% of design cycle time by using XtremePCB™ and the automation of Expedition® PCB. Performing power integrity (PI) analysis with HyperLynx® enabled PFU to manufacture products without any re-spins.
