What is Propagation Delay
Propagation delay is the amount of time it takes for a signal to travel down a wire from one head to another. It is calculated by dividing the distance of the wire by the propagation velocity. Propagation delay has to be considered when designing a PCB because errors in your design can diminish your signal integrity and create problems. With the right software, however, you should be able to run simulations and verify the quality of your design.
Altium Designer is the best PCB design platform on the market. What makes Altium Designer so great? Besides having a streamlined, modern, easy-to-use interface, Altium Designer’s simulation features allow users to quickly and accurately tune and verify their design concepts.
Using Altium Designer, users can run various simulation types:
