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.

Bridging the Simulation Tool Divide

04/12/2021 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
Todd Westerhoff of Siemens EDA recently spoke with the I-Connect007 Editorial Team about the divide between users of high-powered enterprise simulation tools and those who need a more practical tool for everyday use, and how Siemens is working to bridge the gap. Todd also shared his views on why so many engineers do not use simulation, as well as advice for engineers just getting started with simulation tools.

Cadence’s Celsius: Don’t End up Holding the Hot Potato!

12/17/2020 | Clive "Max" Maxfield, Maxfield High-Tech Consulting
I was just thinking about the party game Hot Potato. It reminded me of today’s increasingly competitive marketplace: Accurate thermal analysis must be performed, and any potential issues have to be identified and addressed as early as possible in the design cycle. Otherwise the system will run into problems, market windows will be missed, and someone will be left holding the hot potato. Trust me, you do not want to be that someone.

This Month in Design007 Magazine: Thermal Fundamentals With Mike Jouppi

09/09/2020 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
The I-Connect007 team recently interviewed Mike Jouppi, one of the champions of thermal management in PCBs. Mike spent decades working on updating the old IPC current-carrying data, which dated back to the 1950s, and he is the primary architect behind IPC-2152— the standard for determining current-carrying capacity in printed board design. As Mike explained in this wide-ranging interview, even if you’re using the latest thermal design software, you still need to have a firm understanding of the fundamentals.
