Foundations of Semiconductor Power Integrity Analysis and Simulation

The seventh installment of the Ansys HFSS Foundation webinar series is here! In this webinar, you will gain a deeper understanding of the mathematical underpinnings of Ansys Redhawk-SC and its application in Power analysis and Power integrity.

About this Webinar

This webinar will start with the foundations of IR drop and Dynamic Voltage Drop analysis and simulation for SoC (System-on-Chip). The properties of RLC for advanced FinFET nodes and how to perform IR/DvD through large-scale matrix operations will be discussed. The second part of the webinar will go into the techniques needed for 3D IC IR/DvD sign-off.

What you will learn

  • The basic of IR/DvD analysis and simulation will be discussed
  • The specific requirements for power/ground grid RLC extraction of advanced FinFET nodes
  • Challenges with 3D IC IR/DvD simulation and Redhawk-SC solutions

Who should attend

Both current users and users of competitor solvers (Dassault CST, Altair FEKO, Cadence Clarity)
