Australia Updated The Capacitor Library for Its PDN Planner Software.

In-Circuit Design Pty Ltd (ICD), Australia, developer of the ICD Stackup and PDN Planner software, has updated the Capacitor Library for its PDN Planner software.

“It is extremely difficult and time-consuming for customers to source capacitor properties such as ESRLow Equivalent Series Resistance, ESLLow equivalent series inductance. and self-resonant frequencyThe number of complete cycles or vibrations per unit of time. Rate of alternation in an AC current. Expressed in cycles per second or hertz (Hz).,” said Managing Director Barry Olney. “Generally, these properties are not available in component datasheets and so the designer needs to go to the manufacturer’s web site and download their SPICE simulator to extract the data–each capacitor one-by-one. Now it has been all done for them saving days in a typical analysis.”

The Capacitor Library incorporates SMDDiscrete miniature capacitors which are packaged without leads and fastened directly to foil patterns. components from Kemet, Murata, AVX and TDK–featuring ceramic, tantalum and aluminium capacitors for commercial grade, automotive, high temperature and tight tolerance of low to mid voltage. Capacitor footprints range from 0201 to 2917 and also include low inductanceLow equivalent series inductance. reverse geometry parts.

“With this release, we have added another 3,500 capacitors to the PDN library bringing the total to 5,000 readily available capacitors–set for simulation. Each capacitor is checked to ensure it is stocked by global distributors such as Digikey. We focus on speed of analysis, accuracy and ease of use,” said Olney.
