PCB Trace Width Calculator IPC-2152
PCB performance depends on a many factors. With densely populated boards, high-speed circuitry and multiple supply rails, the demands placed on your PDN (power distribution network) requires an analytical approach. While many designers rely on an IPC-2152 trace width calculator, the IPC-2152 does have limitations. Lucky for you, Altium Designer 18 simplifies the process with the powerful PDN Analyzer tool.
The PDN Analyzer, a downloadable Altium Extension application, integrates with Altium Designer. Simply start the PDN Analyzer from the Altium Designer PCB Editor or Schematic, set your parameters and run a simulation.
The powerful PDN Analyzer extension (version 2.
0) in Altium Designer 18 features:
Smart voltage regulator modeling with sense line support
Simultaneous multi-network simulation
Via, trace, and shape current and density limits
Automated network power calculation
Detailed, sortable, pin & via results
A fully redesigned user interface
