The impedance of the power distribution network (PDN) needs to be minimized in order to prevent unwanted voltage fluctuations at frequencies where current transients occur. To reduce PDN impedance, one can place decoupling capacitors that act as local current sources. However, selecting and placing the right capacitors at the right locations are problematic because of the complexity of modern package and board structures. In addition, decoupling capacitors are not effective at higher… CONTINUE READING
