As our systems in the industry keep pushing the envelope with faster
risetimes and higher clock speeds it will become imperative that designers
pay close attention to the power distribution system in their products. In
this case the "power distribution system" is not just the silver box you plug
into the wall, but includes the power supply, the bulk capacitors, the bypass
capacitors, the power planes, and even the chip package.
As a matter of curiosity I was wondering how many of the si-list subscribers
involved with high performance systems are currently modeling the effects of the
power distribution system in their design work. Any comments why or why not ?
What kind of tools do you use ? Difficulties encountered ?
