Boot Camp – Power Integrity Hands-On Simulation & Measurement

Tue. January 29| 9:00 AM - 4:30 PM | Ballroom E

Pass Type: Boot Camp Pass

Track: 11. Power Integrity in Power Distribution Networks

Audience Level: Introductory

Session Type: Boot Camp

Description: This boot camp combines simulation and measurement. See how the gigabit SI world of IoT, automotive, cloud server products, etc. with the demand for lower power and multiple power rails is driving new paradigms for flat impedance and not just a maximum target Z. Learn how to use impedance vs. frequency data to create measured models, estimate decoupling capacitance, and debug noise ripple on a power rail. Step through optimizing the decoupling for a DDR4 example and then run the PI eco-system simulation with AC and Harmonic balance to look at small signal and large signal responses.

Takeaway: Measured models for VRM and passive components, PCB layout parasitics and EM modeling, using simulators for flat impedance decoupling optimization. The power of network Analyzer impedance measurements combined with time domain power rail observations. Simulation to measurement correlation for power integrity.
