Automated Decoupling Capacitor Analysis Using SIwave PI Advisor

When working in deep sub-micron technologies, designers are left with the task of reducing the cost of their design to meet tight design schedules within the provided budget. Optimization of today’s high-volume printed circuit boards and packages is mostly based on different capacitor models, capacitor price and different number of capacitors, and it must be achieved without compromising the design’s signal-and power-integrity performance. PI Advisor, an add-on option introduced in SIwave 5.0, significantly improves engineering productivity by automating decoupling capacitor selection, placement and optimization for printed circuit boards and packages.
