Interactions between high-speed signals and the system power delivery network (PDN) can degrade signal quality, resulting in data errors that can cause electronic systems to fail. With power-aware simulation, companies can avoid the erratic system behavior caused by PDN-related problems.
This paper takes a look at several mechanisms of PDN-SI interaction, highlights their causes, and discusses the design trade-offs in mitigating these effects. The paper was written by Nitin Bhagwath, Min Maung, and Todd Westerhoff.
