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.”

HyperLynx: There’s an App for That

08/05/2022 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
I recently spoke with Todd Westerhoff, product marketing manager for signal integrity software tools at Siemens. We discussed a new capability called HyperLynx Apps that offers a new take on traditional signal and power integrity analysis, and how that fits in with the Siemens plan to put SI and PI tools into the hands of more designers early in the design cycle.

Webinar Review: Thermal Integrity of High-Performance PCB Design

08/01/2022 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
Electrical and mechanical engineers may be working on the same product development teams, but they speak different languages, and they have completely different objectives. As a result, these folks almost never use the same software tools. But Cadence’s new Celsius Thermal Solver is an exception to the rule. In a new CadenceTECHTALK webinar, “How Static and Dynamic IR Drop Analysis Can Help PCB Designs and Challenges,” product manager Melika Roshandell and SerDes SI/PI engineer Karthik Mahesh Rao explain how the EE and ME can both use the Celsius Thermal Solver to achieve their disparate objectives.

The Great Divide in PCB Simulation Software

07/26/2022 | Zachariah Peterson, NWES
Today’s PCB design engineers have more layout and analysis tools at their disposal than ever before. Over the years we’ve seen layout tools become more automated, rules-driven, and more integrated. Now we even have integration between design tools from different vendors and ranging across domains, starting with basic circuit design, and spanning up to PLM and ERP integration. It really is a great time to be a designer.
