conference paper description
This paper presents a methodology to analyze voltage regulator module (VRM) noise coupling problems in high-volume server applications. The technique is applied on a real engineering design. The comprehensive model includes irregular power shapes, decoupling capacitors, and dielectric and conductive loss. Irregular shaped power plane modeling is cross-checked with four separate methods to demonstrate accuracy. ©2005 IEEE.
