Ground Effect Shorts
Designing multiplayer, high speed PCBs requires attention to detail, especially if you want to avoid the negative effects of ground plane shorts, electromagnetic issues (EMIs) and signal integrity (SI) issues. Running simulations and a power distribution network (PDN) analyzer can help you keep your project on track and your PCB operating properly.
Altium Designer features two technologies to help you circumvent shorts and more during the design phase. With a built-in XSPICE simulator, you can run mixed signal simulations on your design. You can also run a PDN Analyzer to quickly identify and correct any voltage or density issues.
In addition to these tools, Altium Designer users also have access to:
Thousands of ready-to-use components with provided cost, availability, and data sheets
A world-class, award-winning PCB Editor
Advanced, flexible, and powerful routing technology
Push-button output documentation file creation and management tools
Altium Designer is an all-inclusive, easy-to-use PCB platform that can help you rapidly create error-free PCB on time and in budget. Sign up for a FREE TRIAL to see all of its tools and features for yourself.
