Benefits of our Pre-Design Study:
technology and components on your PCB designs.
Pre-Design Study - No schematic or PCB design is required. We are able to determine the
characteristic impedance of transmission lines by modeling their material construction,
cross-sections, conductor and dielectric properties.
Design Verification Management - We offer a complete post-layout signal integrity simulation toolset, using an accurate transmission line simulation approach to analyse reflection and crosstalk effects and to calculate the relevant timing information and delays.
'What if?' Analysis - A graphical scenario editor provides a 'what if?' scratchpad, allowing us to experiment with different design strategies. Various options e.g. termination strategies or net topologies can be verified through simulation.
Layer Stack Definition - We can interactively define and modify the layer stack (conductor & dielectric) and track cross-sections to determine the characteristic impedance of transmission lines.
EMC Device Library - The EMC Device Library is used to add and edit behavioural models.
This approach reduces the number of PCB prototype designs and overall development cost. This ensures your engineers spend their time developing new products and not checking and fixing design assumptions.
“The ability to model signal integrity at the PCB design stage had many benefits. It provided confidence that the manufactured PCBs would not suffer from signal ringing or cross-talk as well as allowing the termination networks on the high speed signals to be optimised. The optimisation of the terminators reduced both PCB design time, as well as product manufacturing costs.”
