HyperLynx DRC Solves Your High Speed PCB Design Challenges

PCB design challenges.

This article describes how to use PADS®HyperLynx® DRC to address your high-speed PCB design challenges.

Coping with SI (signal integrity) and EMI (electromagnetic interfaces) related issues is a daily challenge for PCB design engineers and small teams. To identify and resolve layout challenges during the PCB design process, many engineers rely on sophisticated rule-based checking. By using design rule checks (DRCs), you can avoid end-product problems such as emissions testing failures or signal-integrity-related failures.

This paper reviews the common causes of SI/EMC challenges and shows how they can be easily identified using eight advanced design rules, saving you time and cost.

This paper includes the below 4 parts:

1.What is Electromagnetic interference, or EMI?

2.What are the common causes of EMI in PCB?

3.What are the common causes of Signal Integrity problems in PCB?

4.How to solve these problems with PADS HyperLynx DRC?

EMI and SI issues occur commonly in modern designs, especially in the high-speed design field. Some of the issues are caused by known sources and can be avoided through careful PCB design. Many SI/EMI issues, however, are caused by unintentional sources or by human error, making them difficult to find in a manual review process. PADS HyperLynx DRC easily identifies EMI and SI issues using the eight design rule checks discussed in this paper, thereby helping you improve design quality and avoid costly failures.

You are welcomed to download this paper and hope it is of help to your PCB design.
