Engineers who design and model power distribution networks require accurate component level models from high frequency down to DC. Accurate modelling of power connectors can guarantee best power transfer and minimize power-induced noise. In this paper, which won a DesignCon 2020 Best Paper Award, the authors analyze the frequency-dependent resistance and inductance of various power connectors as well as pin patterns.
