Reason #7: Signal Integrity Analysis: Essential For Modern Electronic Product Designs

PADS SI analysis empowers users to explore what-if scenarios, such as using different component families, and then verify their choice in layout to reveal costly potential problems before prototyping.

1. PADS PCB SI analysis and validation is powered by HyperLynx technology, renowned for its accuracy and ease of use.

2. The HyperLynx analysis environment is tightly integrated with schematic and layout, simplifying signal integrity analysis and not a 3rd-party add-on like most PCB design tools.

3. Using SI analysis reduces design spins and cuts design costs with the powerful, easy-to-use signal integrity capabilities

4. Virtual prototyping detects and resolves potential signal degradation issues, such as overshoot and undershoot, ringing, and timing problems.

5. HyperLynx SI tools are scalable, easy to adopt and learn, and can be implemented quickly.
