The purpose of a power distribution network (PDN) is primarily to provide clean and reliable power to the active devices on the system. The printed circuit board (PCB) is a critical component of the system-level PDN delivery network. As such, optimal design of the PCB power distribution network is of utmost importance for high performance microprocessors. This application report provides implementation guidelines and recommendations for designing printed circuit board (PCB) power delivery networks (PDN) for the Texas Instruments 66AK2G1x microprocessor.
