Realistic assessment of critical structures Designs today often include fewer layers, along with higher component, via, and routing densities that combine to reduce the area for power nets. Realistically, planes are not solid but include cutouts and Swiss cheese via fields. Spreadsheet estimations and simple DC and thermal tools are only helpful if margins are ample. Complex designs with multiple sinks, various voltage levels, and irregular plane structures demand highly accurate approaches to avoid field failures such as vias that act like fuses and thermal stress in areas that neck down or have dynamic plane cuts. The Sigrity PowerDC environment accurately simulates the behavior of materials from die attach to copper and important struc- tures such as wirebonds. The electrical/ thermal co-simulation takes accuracy to an even higher level by simultaneously converging on combined current and temperature impacts. Multi-structure analysis Multi-structure analysis provides an intuitive and easy way to perform electrical or electrical/thermal co-simulation for a multi-board system. After the analysis, all detailed results of each block are integrated into a single signoff report. This capability simplifies the setup process and reduces the analysis time, making the DC analysis of a complicated system a practical requirement for your signoff methodology.
