3.8.1. Simultaneous Switching Noise Analysis
Intel provides tools for SSN analysis and estimation, including SSN characterization reports, an Early SSN Estimator (ESE) spreadsheet tool, and the SSN Analyzer in the Intel® Quartus® Prime software. SSN often leads to the degradation of signal integrity by causing signal distortion, thereby reducing the noise margin of a system. You must address SSN with estimation early in your system design, to minimize later board design changes. When your design is complete, verify your board design by performing a complete SSN analysis of your FPGA in the Intel® Quartus® Prime software.
