Mastering Power Integrity: First Get Your Power Distribution System Right

I don’t think I’m generalizing when I say that designers working on complex high speed designs really don’t want to expend a lot of time and effort dealing with power integrity problems. And they especially don’t want to do it using tools that are detached from their design flow. In today’s complex PCBs, we’re talking advanced processors, complex FPGAs and superfast memories, which all share various voltage ranges.

Power Integrity and Power Distribution Design Tips

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of presenting a webinar concerning power integrity. It was a primer on power distribution systems and how to address the issue of getting enough charge to high frequency devices. This prompted me to write this blog post and share some of the ideas that you can implement immediately.
