Advanced EM simulations yield both conducted and radiated EMI in automotive power integrity analysis

A vital benefit of advanced EM simulations is their ability to take on complicated physical test setups, substituting far easier virtual tests yielding accurate results earlier during design activities. The latest release of Keysight PathWave ADS 2023 continues speeding up engineering workflows. Let’s look at three… Read More

Decimation chain speeds up measurements for 1/f noise

Electronics noise is often described as “white,” spread evenly across a band, typical on older semiconductor processes where thermal and shot noise dominate. As transistors shrink, “pink” 1/f noise takes over at low frequencies – becoming stronger in advanced processes and quantum computing technology. But it’s not an easy… Read More

Predictive DPD virtual test bench

Next up in this series on modulated signals is an example of multi-dimensional EM design challenges: RF power amplifiers (PAs). Digital pre-distortion (DPD) is a favorite technique for linearizing PA performance. Static effects are easy to model and correct, but PAs are notorious for interrelated dynamic effects spoiling … Read More


Shift left gets a modulated signal makeover

Shift left gets a modulated signal makeover

Modulated signals uncover combined effects in a shift left approach

Everyone saw Shift Left, the EDA blockbuster. Digital logic design, with perfect 1s and 0s simulated through perfect switches, shifted into a higher gear. But the dark arts – RF systems, power supplies, and high-speed digital – didn’t shift smoothly. What do these practitioners need in EDA to see more benefits from shift left? … Read More


WEBINARS: Board-Level EM Simulation Reduces Late Respin Drama

WEBINARS: Board-Level EM Simulation Reduces Late Respin Drama
by Don Dingee on 02-01-2022 at 6:00 am

Flat Z design and voltage ripple example in board-level EM simulation

Advanced board designs are fertile ground for misbehavior in time and frequency domains. Relying on intuition, then waiting until near-final product for power integrity (PI) or EMI testing almost guarantees board respins are coming. Lumped-parameter simulations of on-board power delivery networks (PDNs) struggle with … Read More
