Keysight Licenses Simulation Software Technology to Altium for PCB Design Solutions
Keysight Technologies, Inc., a leading technology company that delivers advanced design and validation solutions to help accelerate innovation to connect and secure the world, announced that Altium LLC recently licensed Keysight's advanced electromagnetic simulation technology to develop power analysis solutions for PCB designers. Keysight and Altium are partnering to address the needs of hardware engineers who are not power integrity experts.
Reliable power distribution is a pervasive problem facing PCB designers. As integrated circuit (IC) components trend toward lower supply voltages for increased power efficiency, it becomes difficult to design a PCB power plane within shrinking tolerance limits. Designers typically build several iterations of prototypes or submit their designs to power integrity specialists. Both are sub-optimal approaches that hinder rapid design turnaround. By empowering PCB designers to find and fix problems before first prototype, they can achieve higher productivity, faster time-to-market, and greater redictability in the design process.
