New PDN Analysis for Unified Workflow

By CIOReview | Friday, April 29, 2016

SAN DIEGO, CA: Aitium and CST, unveils new Power Distribution Network (PDN) analysis extension for Altium Designer to solve PDN issues, eliminating the need for physical prototypes or dedicated simulation expertise to solve their post design processes.

Aitium’s PDN analyzer integrates the powerful analysis technology from Computer Simulation Technology (CST) experts with the Altium Designer platform. The analyzer helps engineers to identify the voltage and current issues on the board layout through a native 3D and view their design results, without ever interrupting their existing workflow. With a intuitive and easy-to-use interface, PDN Analyzer allows electronic designers to easily analyze the voltage and current performance and understand what changes needs to be made to a board layout, ensuring that the PDN is error-free.

“PDN Analyzer is architected to enable designers of all experience levels to be confident that their power delivery implementations meet today’s requirements. Having PDN Analyzer in Altium Designer helps engineers to quickly and easily analyze and optimize DC power performance without relying on expensive physical prototypes or disconnected, third party alternatives,” says  Jeff Loyer, Signal and Power Integrity Product Manager at Altium.
