Mentor Paper: Ensuring DDRx Reliability by Integrating SI, PI


Reading time ( words)

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.

EMA: Cadence Moves Simulation Further Up in the Design Cycle

03/15/2019 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
Cadence Design Systems recently integrated more of its Sigrity capabilities into the front end of its PCB design tools. During DesignCon, Chris Banton of EMA Design Automation spoke with me about how this drive for “model-less analysis” benefits the PCB designer who can now access signal and power integrity, DFM, and electrical rule checking functionality early in the design process and have fewer issues later.

Words of Advice: What are Your Biggest Design Challenges?

03/11/2019 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
In a recent survey, we asked the following question: What are your biggest design challenges? Here are just a few of the answers, edited slightly for clarity.

Todd Westerhoff Discusses His New Position and Much More

03/07/2019 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
At DesignCon, I met with our old friend Todd Westerhoff, a veteran signal integrity engineer. Todd joined Mentor, a Siemens Business, since we last spoke. We discussed his new job responsibilities, his drive to get more designers and engineers to use SI tools, and the increasing value of cost-reduced design techniques versus overdesigning PCBs.
