exporting PDN planes from board sim to line sim

I used Hyperlynxv8.1 for the below analysis.


I simulated one of my power plane in Boardsim for doing AC Decoupling analysis.

In the ZPDN impedance profile, there were some ZPDN violations in low frequencies.

As I wanted to add more capacitors to satisfy the PDN target, I had to export this net into linesim.

I was unable to do the same.


Has anyone tried this - exporting power net from Boardsim to Linesim for adding capacitors?

Which version of the tool, it did work?

Do provide your suggestions for the same.
