SiSoft to Present on IBIS-AMI and DDR5 at DesignCon 2018


Reading time ( words)

Signal Integrity Software Inc. will present two complementary sessions focused on building IBIS-AMI models and how DDR5 AMI models can be applied to systems design.  The sessions, titled “Building AMI Models for DDR5 Applications” and “Applying IBIS-AMI Techniques to DDR5 Analysis,” will be presented on Wednesday, January 31 and Thursday, February 1 at DesignCon 2018. DesignCon takes place January 30–February 1, 2018 at the Santa Clara Convention Center.

“We’re still in the early stages of applying IBIS-AMI models to DDR-based design, so flexibility in system-level analysis and modeling is crucial,” noted Barry Katz, SiSoft’s president and CTO. “There are multiple ways to analyze DDR interfaces for signal integrity and timing, and the preferred methodology will vary based on the controller being used. Similarly, we’re still experimenting with the feature set for DDR5 AMI models. That’s why we are particularly excited about combining SiSoft’s Quantum-SI and its configurable analysis methodology with MathWorks’ Simulink for AMI model development. We have created a flow where DDR5 silicon vendors can adjust their AMI models and system-level analysis methodology in real time to suit changing needs.”

PCB Design Challenges: A Package Designer’s Perspective

09/17/2018 | Bill Acito, Cadence Design Systems
The challenges faced by the PCB designers of today are significant. If we examine the breadth of designs, we find ever-increasing data rates and more high-speed signal routing that drive additional challenges meeting signal-quality requirements, including reflection signal loss and crosstalk issues. At the same time, designers are being asked to complete designs in shorter cycle times and in smaller form factors. They must come up with new and more complex routing strategies to better control impedance and crosstalk. Manual implementation is often time-consuming and prone to layout errors.

Managing the Challenges of Flex and Rigid-Flex Design

09/12/2018 | Dave Wiens, Mentor, a Siemens Business
PCB designers working with flex or rigid-flex technology face many potential risks that can derail a project and cause costly design failures. As the name implies, flex and rigid-flex designs comprise a combination of rigid and flexible board technologies made up of multiple layers of flexible circuit substrates, attached internally and/or externally to one or more rigid boards. These combinations provide flexibility for the PCB designer working on dense designs that require a specific form factor. Rigid-flex allows the PCB design team to cost-efficiently apply greater functionality to a smaller volume of space, while providing the mechanical stability required by most applications.

Mentor Preparing for Next-Gen PCB Designers

08/20/2018 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
Millennials are the future of our industry. What does this mean for the PCB design community? How do we attract more of these smart young people to the world of PCB design? I asked Paul Musto, director of marketing for Mentor’s Board Systems Division, to explain the company’s initiatives aimed at drawing more young people into PCB design
