The inherent need to address signal quality challenges is no longer limited to just high-end, high-speed, signal integrity experts. OrCAD provides an integrated analysis environment with powerful simulation technology beginning at the schematic level. Seamless pre-layout analysis is available directly inside the OrCAD environment at no additional cost to you. Identify a wide array of signal quality issues including overshoot/undershoot, ringing and delay among many others. With advanced features including powerful analysis capabilities of Signal Explorer and SigWave, you can now explore and eliminate signal integrity problems early in your design process during schematic entry in OrCAD Capture.

Sigrity technologists guide you step by step on how to use the Sigrity Finite Difference Time Domain (FDTD) simulator to accurately predict the impact of simultaneous switching noise (SSN) in a system context. A PCB layout is directly connected to a system topology without having to perform an S-parameter extraction. This “FDTD-direct” methodology overcomes the challenge faced by SI engineers who fear accuracy could be compromised when converting an S-parameter to a simplified broadband spice model.

Sigrity technologists guide you step by step on how to setup a leadframe package design for accurate extraction using the 3D quasi-static solver engine. Accurate RLC extraction is performed on a leadframe design from the same environment used to model multi-layer packages with other solver engines. Design productivity is improved by enabling a common environment to model leadframe, flip-chip, and wirebond IC Packages.
