Document Table of Contents Use power distribution network (PDN) tool to plan for power distribution and decoupling capacitor selection

MAX® 10 devices include on-die decoupling capacitors to provide high-frequency decoupling.

To plan power distribution and return currents from the voltage regulating module to the FPGA power supplies, you can use the PDN design tool that optimizes the board-level PDN graphically. Although you can use SPICE simulation to simulate the circuit, the PDN design tool provides a fast, accurate, and interactive way to determine the right number of decoupling capacitors for optimal cost and performance trade-off.
