Explore Power Integrity Early and Often

To help you quickly implement general topologies and standard interfaces, the Cadence® Sigrity™ SystemPI™ integrated with Cadence Celsius™ Advanced PTI performs automated source-to-sink power integrity analysis from a general-purpose topology exploration environment.

The highly flexible topology environment enables you to perform power integrity analysis from the voltage source to all the components receiving power from that source. The flexibility of the topology interface allows for early analysis to perform what-if analysis to help drive performance specifications across the multi-fabric power delivery network (PDN). As design work progresses, extracted PDN models can be swapped in to reflect the detail of design structures. Should a design fail during signoff, the flexibility of the topology environment can aid in identifying the source of the failure by swapping in and out ideal PDN models for sections of the PDN topology.
