Principles of Power Integrity for PDN Design-Simplified : Robust and Cost Effective Design for High
about this item
PDN design has become the hottest topic in signal integrity because failures from poor PDN design are increasing and the design principles are generally poorly understood. More than ever, engineers need to create designs that are both highly robust and cost-effective. Many widely propagated guidelines are either wrong or can’t be generalized beyond a few specific situations. For engineers, this has created far too much FUD (fear, uncertainty, and doubt).
In Robust Power Distribution Network Design, two of the field’s leading experts empower engineers with principles, techniques, processes and insight they need to make their own decisions about PDN design. Larry Smith and Eric Bogatin offer simplified, clear, and empirically supported coverage of these and other topics:
* Measuring low impedances
* Lowest and highest-frequency PDN designs
* MLCC capacitor integration
* Planes and capacitors
* System Level Design: The ecology of the PDN
* Optimizing capacitor values
* Managing transient and transfer noise
* Technology options
Smith and Bogatin conclude with a full chapter of case studies that guide engineers through making real tradeoffs among performance, risk and cost.
Note: Safari Enhanced and ePub enhanced versions of this book will include links to short videos of live Camtasia simulations and animations illuminating key PDN design concepts.
