Analyses of Bounces on Power Distribution Networks Using an Unconditionally Stable Finite-Difference Time-Domain Method
January 2006 (vol. 5 no. 1)
pp. 20-27
An unconditionally stable finite-difference time-domain (US-FDTD) method is utilized for analyzing the bounces on structures of power distribution networks (PDNs), which is a critical issue in the electromagnetic compatibility analysis of mobile devices. The US-FDTD method does not utilize the explicit leapfrog time scheme of conventional FDTD method and can solve problems with fine structures well, such as via, thin material and so on. By using this full-wave method, electromagnetic fields between power/ground plane pairs are analyzed and discontinuities of through-hole vias are taken into account in the modeling of PDNs.
