Sigrity PowerSI 3D EM Full-Wave Extraction Option 


Full-wave solver for IC package and PCB capable of accurate analysis of complex 3D structures


Sigrity PowerSI 3D EM Full-Wave Extraction Option Datasheet »

Cadence® Sigrity® PowerSI 3D EM Full-Wave Extraction Option (3DEM) is a three-dimensional (3D) full-wave electromagnetic field (EM) solver tailored for IC package and PCB board design’s S-parameter model extraction for power-integrity (PI) and signal-integrity (SI) analysis. It provides faster simulation speed than other popular 3D finite element analysis tools through its model reduction technology. The adaptive finite element mesh (FEM) refinement technology is used to provide consistent accuracy for complicated 3D structures. Enablement of time-domain transient analysis is improved over other EM solvers with its robust low-frequency-conditioning algorithm to provide stable and accurate solutions down to 100Hz. 3DEM has a workflow-driven user interface and automatic port generation that makes it easier to use than other EM solvers.


The standard 2D view of the design (left) allows for selecting nets and viewing individual or groups of nets. By walking through the steps in the workflows provided, users can follow a repeatable flow for common tasks. A 3D view of the design (right) allows the user to track the connectivity through vias and visualize relationships between interconnect that would not be possible with only a 2D view.
