Overview:
This webinar will focus on co-simulation
methodologies for time and frequency domain simulations. A theoretical review of
package/PCB modeling will be presented with a revisit of ABCD networks as
related to S and Z parameters. An overview of chip-level extraction will be
given with a discussion on how to include chip models in a system-level
simulation. The goal is to provide engineers with methods that successfully
design power delivery networks with the chip to ensure system metrics are met in
context of the system as a whole, rather than individual parts.

What attendees will learn:

  • Power Delivery Network (PDN) design requirements
  • ABCD Matrix theory
  • SYZ Matrix theory
  • Chip-level Extraction
  • Effect of Chip inclusion on time and frequency domain system simulations
