Thanks to Steve Sandler, CEO of Picotest.com who uses ADS to illustrate several important tips in power distribution network (PDN) design in a recent article in EDN entitled PCB characteristics affect PDN performance.
In particular, Steve highlights importance of matching termination impedances to the characteristic impedance, and the dire consequences of mismatch.
Thanks again, Steve!
I came across an ADS feature the other day, and wondered what you think about it. The feature is explained in the video below. Please take a look then come back to this page to vote in the informal, unscientific poll using the radio buttons immediately below the image. Thanks!
