Sigrity Solution Optimizes IR Drop Analysis for Packages and Boards

PowerDC™ System-Level Software Helps Designers Budget Voltage Margins for Every Device to Ensure Designs are Operational

SANTA CLARA, Calif., May 31, 2005 - Sigrity, Inc., the market leader in power and signal integrity software solutions for integrated circuits, IC packages and printed circuit boards, today announced PowerDC PKG and PowerDC PCB - software customized for system-level IR drop analysis. As the only standalone tool optimized for IR drop analysis for packages and boards, it helps designers budget end-to-end voltage margins for every device on the package and board to ensure designs are operational.

PowerDC complements Sigrity's comprehensive power integrity analysis solutions by providing highly efficient and accurate DC analysis of IC packages and boards to show voltage drops at various component locations. It also finds hot spots that potentially could cause problems. In addition, it identifies possible neckdowns that could adversely impact electrical and thermal performance in the routing. The solution is ideal for today's low-voltage, high-current designs, which require IR drop analysis to optimize the voltage margins for every device on the distribution.

Jiayuan Fang, president of Sigrity, said, "Voltage margins are extremely tight for designs at 90nm and below, making off-chip analysis imperative for achieving operational designs.

PowerDC ensures that designers can get accurate system-level IR drop analysis for packages and boards in a very efficient manner."

Pricing and Availability
PowerDC will be available in June 2005; each version is priced from U.S. $25,000.
