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.

This approach bridges the gap between science and practice by enabling the fast analysis of complex PCBs, while offering power integrity and decoupling-related 'what if' capabilities. This allows power distribution system optimization (i.e., costs vs. quality) during the design process, thereby speeding time to market, improving product quality, and enhancing the productivity of engineering designers.

Zuken's CR-5000 Lightning Power Integrity Advance is a tool that enables concurrent analysis of power, DC noise effects and electromagnetic interference as an integral part of the PCB design flow.
