Course Highlights

You will learn how to

  • 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
  • Set up and run Plane Noise Analysis in LineSim and BoardSim
  • Set up and run Power Integrity/Signal Integrity co-simulation in LineSim
  • Extract Via and PDN models for use in various simulation environments
  • Analyze bypassing of signal vias
  • Evaluate the results of different types of analysis and identify the potential hot spots in PowerScope, TouchStone Viewer, and Digital Oscilloscope graphical tools
  • Modify the PDN to fix the potential problems
  • Explore design PDN methodologies

Hands-on labs

  • 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
  • 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 stackup 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
  • Analyzing how AC changes in IC power pins affect the noise on power planes, exploring the analysis results in PowerScope, identifying the hot spots, making adjustments (changing board shape, etc.) in LineSim, and re-simulating to validate the adjustments
  • Setting up and performing signal Integrity / power integrity co-simulation, evaluating signal integrity simulation results in the digital oscilloscope graphical tool and power integrity results in PowerScope
  • Analyzing the bypassing quality of a signal via
  • Exploring various methodologies for designing a PDN
