How to buy
The Fusion 360 Signal Integrity Extension, powered by Ansys, is a cost option that unlocks additional PCB/electronics signal integrity tools and capabilities inside Fusion 360, allowing you to run electromagnetic analysis on critical signals within your PCB.
The Signal Integrity Extension enables product designers and engineers to inspect and resolve issues with PCB signals early in the design phase to improve product EMC and EMI (Electromagnetic Compatibility and Interference) testing compliance, reduce costly physical PCB testing and prototyping, and accelerate development.
Discover how to improve your high-speed PCB design compliance with EMI and EMC testing standards with PCB signal integrity tools available in Fusion 360.
Improve your product development process by virtualising electromagnetic analysis and simulation early within PCB design workflow.
Minimise costly physical PCB prototyping and boards re-spins with access to your design’s electromagnetic signal performance.
PCB Impedance matching
Manage and control the impedance for every critical signal throughout your board for an optimal high-speed design performance.
Signal Integrity insights
Analyse your design signals to inspect parameters that characterise high speed design such as signal delays, trace length, impedance and coupling.
With simple input parameters and configuration, PCB engineers can select signals of interest for quick on-demand analysis.
Visual violation flagging
Easily and visually identify any potential signal impedance or coupling issues with a superimposed colour-coded overlay on your 2D PCB design.
The Fusion 360 Signal Integrity Extension is a cost-option signal integrity simulation and analysis service powered by Ansys technology that, when purchased, unlocks insights into the PCB design impacts on performance through information around signal length, impedance, inductance, resistance, delay and more. Extensions provide a flexible, cost-effective way for you to access more advanced technology in line with your changing business needs.
The Fusion 360 Signal Integrity Extension unlocks advanced insights into PCB/electronics electromagnetic performance that can help identify potential high-speed PCB design issues, such as impedance mismatching and signal delay issues, then resolve and validate them quickly to help achieve first-pass success in PCB, including:
The Fusion 360 Signal Integrity Extension can only be used with Fusion 360 and only within the Fusion 360 electronics workspace.
The Fusion 360 Signal Integrity Extension is available wherever Fusion 360 is sold and can be accessed using different payment methods to suit your business needs, including monthly and yearly options. Learn more about purchasing Fusion 360 extensions

The Signal Integrity Extension, developed by Autodesk and powered by Ansys technology, offers the ability to unlock additional PCB design capabilities for when you need them. By comparison, stand-alone programmes tend to be point solutions that are intended to provide simulation capability in its own environment while the signal integrity extensions provides the ability to gain powerful signal quality insights in line with PCB design workflows in the same environment that the designs take place, providing feedback into product performance while it is being designed empowering the user with more information earlier in the design cycle and more confidence that their design will work. By further comparison, add-ins tend to be point solutions, developed by 3rd parties, that connect to the Fusion 360 API to solve a specific problem. Add-ins are less powerful and more likely to become obsolete if the 3rd party fails to update them.
