Sam explained how the Cadence Sig- rity simulation software now allows users to make decisions early in the design process, and how this can help optimize the design of the power delivery network and ensure signal integrity in complex PCBs. 4 DownStream Webinar: The Benefits of Design for Manufacture E Relying on the design rule checking function of your PCB CAD system is a good start to finding manufacturing issues, but it's simply not enough.
