> I've just read the Signal Integrity column by Howard Johnson that
> was recently (Sept. 1 '98) published in EDN magazine and wanted to
> Howard on his timely article and to suggest that others on the list who
> had an opportunity to read his comments should make it a point to look it
> His comments hit close to home as I've seen examples of many of the
> effects he describes. The article is light on theory, but very strong on
> technical philosophy.
> 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
> involved with high performance systems are currently modeling the effects of
> power distribution system in their design work. Any comments why or why not ?
> What kind of tools do you use ? Difficulties encountered ?
