New: Fusion 360 Signal Integrity Extension Powered by Ansys

Shannon McGarry November 30, 2022 1 min read

Improve product compliance and performance, reduce costly physical PCB testing and prototyping, and accelerate development with the Fusion 360 Signal Integrity Extension powered by Ansys.

High-speed PCB design can be challenging as it requires multiple considerations, including trace width, PCB material properties, ground plane clearances, adjacent geometric spacing, return paths, and more. Manual identification, verification, and correction of these constraints on any ECAD system can be a daunting and time-consuming task.


What is the Fusion 360 Signal Integrity Extension?

The Autodesk Fusion 360 Signal Integrity Extension, powered by Ansys, enables designers to analyze their PCB electromagnetic performance. With simple input parameters and configuration, engineers can select signals of interest for quick analysis.

The results are rendered with a colored gradient, enabling designers to easily identify problematic signal paths and violations, allowing them to make design updates and mitigate signal impedance mismatches.

What are the benefits of the Fusion 360 Signal Integrity Extension?

Ensure compliant smart products

Easily ensure your products’ high-speed, RF, and wireless capabilities meet your design specs and are compliant with industry standards, directives, and rules.

Reduce development costs

Minimize costly PCB physical testing and board re-spins with access to feedback on your design’s electromagnetic performance.

Get to market faster

Reduce the length of project timelines by reducing activities due to engineering change orders, multiple physical prototype PCB manufacturing, and physical EMC/EMI testing.   

What’s available in the Fusion 360 Signal Integrity Extension? 

Simple configuration

With simple input parameters and configuration, engineers can select signals of interest for quick on-demand analysis.

Signal insights

Analyze your design to inspect parameters that characterize high-speed signals, such as propagation delay, trace length, impedance, and coupling.

Impedance matching                

Manage and control the impedance for every transmission line throughout your board for a distortion-free and optimal high-speed performance design.

Visual violation flagging

Easily and visually identify any potential impedance or coupling issues with a superimposed color-coded overlay on your 2D PCB design. 

Are you ready to take the headache out of high-speed PCB design with access to electromagnetic analysis capabilities, allowing you to create smarter products, faster and at a lower cost?
