Starting Power Integrity

It's good to have a basic understanding of what the power integrity features in HyperLynx do before you get too deep into a project. Decoupling analysis does just decoupling between a power and ground net pair. Plane noise analysis simulated high-frequency noise transmitted in a transmission plane, the 2-dimension version of the 1-dimensional transmission line. DC drop uses resistor models to calculate voltage drop (I x R) between a power source and a current sink. Each of these types of analysis is separate from the others, and each makes appropriate assumptions and approximations suitable to its specific type of analysis. The assumptions may exclude some specific design methodologies, but are intended to cover the majority of designs with providing easy to use and efficient analysis tools.
