What is a Power Distribution Network (PDN) after all but resistance, inductance, and capacitance in the PCB and components? And, of course, it is there to deliver the right current and voltage to each component on your PCB. But is that all? Are there other issues beneath the surface that can affect your product? Well, it seems PDN should be taken seriously. And, no doubt, it always helps to be well-grounded (pun not intended) in any subject for that matter.
More so now, with ever-higher speeds and shrinking size of the circuits. So even that little bit (and it's never a little bit) of noise from your PDN really hurts. And the fact that you are trying to squeeze everything into that small space while juggling with EMI considerations does not help either. But this is not all; you are actually managing at least five issues if not more, mostly interrelated and combining to increase the complexity of your design and layout challenges.
But, if you are prepared if you know the why's and the what's and the where's, and, of course, the how's – well you rule. Knowledge, they say, is power. So, I thought I'll share this good news with all our readers. Join John Phillips for a free, one-hour live webinar, “Power Distribution Network Fundamentals for Design and PCB Layout” created exclusively for design and PCB layout engineers.
And, in John's own words, "In this webinar, we’ll take a step back from the actual use of the Cadence tools. Instead, we’ll go into the why and how of the physical implementation. We’ll also discuss the tradeoffs that are made with stackup, component choice, placement, and breakout/layout, as well as the steps that can be taken in the PCB layout to maximize the performance of the PDN." And, very important, John has also promised emphasis will be on the physical/practical implementations of the PDN with absolutely no math involved.
