Surface Current Distribution for PCB PDNGeometry
Surface current distribution provides an intuitive perspective on how the current flows, which is critical for high speed design. The surface current distribution for the power distribution network (PDN) in printed circuit board (PCB) is related to the input impedance observed by the IC looking into the PCB PDN. Two different principle methods are used to describe the current distribution, namely plane-pair PEEC (PPP) and resonant cavity model.
