Simberian Releases Simbeor 2021.02

Reading time ( words)

Simbeor 2021.02 is now available for customers and trials. It provides unmatched productivity for electromagnetic analysis of serial PCB and packaging interconnects with the analysis to measurement correlation. 

Here are the highlights of the recent updates and new release: 

  • Up to 100 times greater acceleration of analysis of 3D structures with 3DML solver and fast interpolative sweep with no impact on accuracy, with the same analysis-to-measurement correlation as before
  • Automatic recognition and model re-use for vias and launches in post-layout decompositional analysis; extracted vias and launches can be further tuned in Via Analyzer or optimized with SiTune.
  • Acceleration of geometry import in Board Analyzer and geometry processing in DeComposer.
  • Simultaneous FD and TD analysis of viaholes, launches and other discontinuities, to see via TDR during the optimization enabled by improved interpolative sweep
  • Easy back-drilling setup in Via Analyzer
  • Wizard to unite geometries of PKG breakout, balls and PCB breakout for modeling as one discontinuity, enabled by the 3DML solver improvements
  • New productivity mode in Simbeor THz without most of the wizards
  • Simbeor SDK contains multiple new functions including everything to automate pre-layout analysis in C/Matlab or Python.

Simbeor 2021.02 is available now. More productivity improvement features will be released this year as continuous deployment of Simbeor 2021 continues—stay tuned.

TTM’s Approach to Stackup Design: Train the Customer

01/12/2021 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
In this interview with the I-Connect007 Editorial Team, TTM’s Julie Ellis and Richard Dang drill down into stackup design, detailing some of the common stackup challenges that their customers face when designing for both prototype and volume levels, and offering advice to designers or engineers who are struggling with stackup issues. They also discuss why having too many different prepregs in a stackup can be asking for trouble, and how proper stackup design can optimize both the fabrication and assembly processes.

Chapter 1 Excerpt from the Book ‘Thermal Management: A Fabricator's Perspective’

12/08/2020 | Anaya Vardya, American Standard Circuits
Heat cannot be efficiently exchanged with stagnant air surrounding a hot device; however, it can be transferred away from the electronic component to the PCB using thermal vias. A thermal via is a good conductor of heat that runs between the top layer and bottom layer of the PCB, dissipating heat through simple conduction. In simple terms, thermal vias are plated holes located under, or electrically connected to, a surface-mounted heat source on a PCB that allows heat transfer through the hole.

Stephen Chavez and Happy Holden on Designing Reliable Vias

12/02/2020 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
Andy Shaughnessy and Happy Holden speak with Stephen Chavez, a staff engineer with an aerospace company and chairman of the Printed Circuit Engineering Association (PCEA), about designing vias for greater reliability. They also address several areas where they can look to improve reliability, a variety of steps that designers should take to help ensure more robust vias, and some testing and educational resources that PCB designers and design engineers should be aware of.
