PADS HyperLynx DC Drop Analysis

Early analysis of power-delivery issues integrated into the CAD for PCB Design

When DC Drop Analysis makes a difference

Power delivery and reliability are critical for product creation with today’s modern, high-performance electronic circuits. With PADS HyperLynx DC Drop Analysis you can avoid unexpected or unpredictable circuit behavior by identifying power-delivery issues early in the product creation process.

PADS HyperLynx DC Drop quickly analyzes voltage drop of power supply rails due to copper losses found in power plane shapes, power traces, and neckdowns in dense layouts. It has interactive and batch-mode simulation capabilities and allows easy exploration of different conductor materials and trace thicknesses. It identifies areas of excessive current density.

Optimize your device early with DC Drop Analysis

PADS HyperLynx DC Drop is a tool provided by Siemens that quickly identifies problem areas in the PCB design that may be difficult to spot in tests or prototypes. The tool provides diagnostic solutions that can be applied in an easy-to-use environment. The results can be validated in the layout, to make sure that the appropriate guidelines have been followed, in order to reduce prototype recycling. With DC Drop, designers can:

  • optimize the Power Distribution Network (PDN) for efficient, clean, multi-voltage integrated circuit power supply;
  • quickly analyze the voltage drops due to insufficient copper on the power supply nets, thus eliminating expensive prototypes for research and problem analysis;
  • identify areas of the layout with excessive current density, so that they can be optimized quickly.
