Simulation software checks PCB sign integrity

Keysight’s Electrical Efficiency Scan (EP-Scan) is a digital simulation software for {hardware} engineers and PCB designers that performs speedy sign integrity evaluation. EP-Scan offers diagnostics to assist engineers establish format points and catch design inconsistencies early within the design course of.

After finishing a PCB design, {hardware} engineers hand the design over to sign integrity (SI) specialists to validate its efficiency earlier than going to prototype. SI specialists carry out simulations on numerous nets, which may take days to weeks to finish. Uncertainty in regards to the size of the SI evaluation part creates a bottleneck within the design cycle and delays time-to-market.

As a stand-alone software program program, EP-Scan performs electromagnetic simulation on sign nets and experiences SI metrics, similar to channel return and insertion loss. As well as, EP-Scan automates efficiency comparisons between totally different variations of a design and generates simulation experiences that expedite verification previous to constructing bodily prototypes.

By analyzing widespread fabrication codecs like ODB++, EP-Scan reveals engineers the efficiency of their design as it could be when fabricated. EP-Scan allows {hardware} engineers to shortly validate designs and take away verification bottlenecks earlier than the ultimate verification.
