How can concurrent power integrity analysis improve your PCB quality and reduce cost?

The latest approach to power integrity can help reduce the number of board layers and eliminate panic tactics, such as adding additional decoupling capacitors to prevent power distribution issues during the engineering of PCBs. The core concept behind the concurrent analysis approach involves designing the power distribution systems first to guarantee positive power integrity results as early as possible, and then placing other components around them. By doing the analysis concurrently with the board layout, designers can avoid adding extra components and incurring unnecessary manufacturing costs.
