3 PCB Power Integrity Concerns and How to Solve Them

Detailed attention to Power Integrity is a requirement for today's complex electronic designs. Poor stack-up design, low voltage, split planes, and misused de-coupling caps all lead to Power Integrity problems. 

Optimized performance and long-term reliability can be achieved when analysis supports key decisions such as stack-up design, power plane design, de-coupling cap use, and materials selections. 3 key areas of PCB Power Integrity concern can be found here, with indications of how Power Integrity Analysis directly supports these critical decisions.
