PCB Power IntegrityToday’s high-speed digital PCB designs fail frequently due to poor power integrity. While tools exist to validate a design’s power integrity, it’s important for the entire design team to have an understanding of the mechanisms that help or hinder a PCB’s power integrity.

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.
