nVolt is Nimbic’s power integrity solution using a specialized 3D, broadband, full-wave electromagnetic solver. nVolt is based on proprietary accelerated boundary element technology that enables unprecedented speed and capacity, while preserving gold-standard Maxwell accuracy. nVolt is built from the ground up to address the large capacity requirements of power integrity problems with a much faster solution time.
nVolt’s integrated solution provides, in a unified interface, multiple options and features that typically are available only in multiple products. Designers can benefit from Power Integrity Analysis such as Impedance profile, capacitor loop inductance and fast capacitor what-if from this interface that exploits powerful broadband full-wave EM technology.
nVolt features print circuit board (PCB) import capability from industry standard formats, and merging utilities within an integrated workspace, thereby enabling full board co-analysis.
nVolt’s deep IP and rich feature list enables users to choose from multiple modes and design-enabling features throughout the design cycle. nVolt’s high speed and scalability enables designers to perform signoff post-layout verification while a parametric modeling mode allows designers to perform intelligent what-if analysis early in the design cycle to help mitigate significant re-work later in the process. nVolt’s broadband formulation enables generation of DC to high-frequency S-parameters from a single tool.
Users can obtain S, Y and Z matrices, visualize induced and return currents, improve designs by observing strong coupling paths, create full board 3d models and observe electrical behavior through the integrated system. nVolt’s powerful DC solver features allow for static IR drop analysis for current and voltage gradient visualization and for accurate parameter extraction.
nVolt integrates tightly with existing design flows in a seamless fashion, thereby enabling efficient frontend and backend integration.
nVolt offers an integrated full-wave 3D SI, PI, EMI solution in a single software framework and seamlessly fits into standard CAD flows. nVolt directly imports geometry in widely used CAD formats and produces output models that are compatible with standard circuit simulation engines.
