Consider the proverb, “It takes a village to raise a child.” Similarly, multiple design team members participate in assuring PCB power integrity (PI) as a design moves from the early concept phase to becoming a mature product. On the front end, there’s the electrical design engineer who is responsible for the schematic. On the back end, the layout designer handles physical implementation. Typically, a PI analysis expert is responsible for overall PCB PI and steps in early on to guide the contributions of others. How quickly a team can assure PCB PI relates to the effectiveness of that team.
In this paper, we will take a look at currently popular analysis approaches to PCB PI. We will also introduce a team-based approach to PCB PI that yields advantages in resource utilization and analysis results.
