Signal Integrity & Simulation

Signal Integrity & Simulation


With many of today's digital designs having signals in the GHz range, Signal Integrity simulation has never been more important. Design techniques that were adequate for lower frequency systems no longer work as clock rates continue to increase. FPGAs, DRAMs, busses, microprocessors and many other system elements routinely switch in the hundreds of megahertz if not gigahertz range. With today's compressed schedules and budgets, it's extremely important to get the design and layout correct the first time. Without proper SI simulation a poorly functioning system with random errors is often the end result.

A2e has the experience and tools to do both pre and post route SI simulation and advise you of the corrective steps to take. We can work with your engineers and layout personnel before and during layout to help ensure a high quality design that functions at the required speed. We typically get involved early in the project in order to perform as much modeling as possible. Although we can get involved after a board has been fabricated, total schedule and development cost are always less when SI simulation is done before the first prototype PCB is released to fabrication.
