Cadence Webinar: Addressing Interconnect Modeling Challenges


Reading time ( words)

Accurate SI/PI analysis requires ultra-accurate 3D model extraction. Cadence’s Clarity 3D Solver is enabling dozens of PCB and IC packaging teams to perform complex 3D model extractions and create ultra-accurate interconnect models for their most demanding SI/PI simulations, and up to 10X faster than the nearest legacy tool. 

This webinar will take you through two test cases—a system-level memory interface and a rigid-flex PCB design—with the following key takeaways:

  • Accurate power-aware SI simulations of system-level memory interface, enabled by 3D extractions of full memory bus
  • Simulation of Rigid-Flex PCB in both flat and folded states
  • Demonstration of what you miss when you do not simulate the folded state

Why We Simulate

04/29/2021 | Bill Hargin, Z-zero
When Bill Hargin was cutting his teeth in high-speed PCB design some 25 years ago, speeds were slow, layer counts were low, dielectric constants and loss tangents were high, design margins were wide, copper roughness didn’t matter, and glass-weave styles didn’t matter. Dielectrics were called “FR-4” and their properties didn’t matter much. A fast PCI bus operated at just 66 MHz. Times have certainly changed.

Alternatives to Simulation

04/23/2021 | Dan Beeker, NXP Semiconductors
We are living in an age where the demands on electronic product designs are constantly evolving. The IC technology and operating speeds continue to pose significant challenges for teams as they work to develop their products. The increased transistor switching speeds and less forgiving compliance standards make signal integrity and electro-magnetic compliance more difficult to achieve. The status quo seems to have become, “We expect to fail EMC testing.”

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.
