Current Distribution, Resistance, and Inductance in Power Connectors

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.

Just how good are VNA Measurements?

Just because someone has a VNA capable of 60 GHz bandwidth doesn’t mean it will always give the same results. It is not the instrument, but the measurement procedure that seems to influence the quality of the measurements the most.  Read on for information on a recent study from Jason Ellison, Heidi Barnes, and Jose Moreira  as well as 7 tips for improving your measurements.

The Future of Power Integrity

Get six experts in a room together and you are likely to hear seven different opinions. Not so at the Future of Power Integrity Panel Discussion at DesignCon 2019.  The consensus of this panel of experts is that the future of power integrity will include single processor chips drawing as much as 1000 A and more. Read on for the details of this discussion!
