    Ferrite Beads in PI?


      Can ferrite beads be included in Decoupling analysis?  There doesn't seem to be a way to assign a ferrite model in the "Assign Power Integrity Models" under any of the series components tab.

          I don't think you will be able to include the series ferrite bead in decoupling analysis.

          Take them as 2 different plane shapes and simulate for Zpdn separately.That is what I did.


          If anyone has come across a way to include the series element (FBs, inductors, resistors) in decoupling analysis, please advise.
