Sigrity OptimizePI

Achieve the Best PDN Performance without Over-Designing

Optimize Your Power Delivery Network

Analyze the correlation between Power Delivery Network (PDN) performance, decoupling capacitor selection, decoupling capacitor placement, and cost to obtain the optimal PDN design. OptimizePI utilizes AC frequency analysis as well as pre-layout and post-layout simulations to determine the best decoupling capacitor configuration to meet the PDN requirements at the lowest possible cost.

Key Benefits

  • Improve Power Delivery Network Performance
  • Optimize Decoupling Capacitors
  • Eliminate Over-Designing and Reduce Costs
  • Identify Ideal Configuration Based on Performance, Size, and Cost Metrics
