Which Phrase Best Describes Your Usage of IBIS AMI?

Posted March 31st, 2009 · 3 Comments · Survey


Enjoy the instant gratification of seeing the results so far by participating in this informal, unscientific poll on the emerging AMI Support in IBIS as defined in BIRD 104.1.

AMI?… IBIS?… BIRD?… First let’s decypher the alphabet soup.

AMI = Algorithmic Modeling application programming Interface

BIRD = Buffer Issue Resolution Document (a proposal by a member to the IBIS Open Forum committee to enhance the standard)

IBIS = Input/output Buffer Information Specification ANSI/EIA-656-B

    As you correctly observe, the results you get from a survey depend on who you ask as well as what questions you ask. Given the question you’ve asked and the audience you’ve asked it of, I wonder what valid conclusions you’re going to be able to draw.

    Hi Mike,
    You get what you pay for 🙂
    I know your company has invested in building an IBIS-AMI simulator, so I’d suggest if you you want a valid conclusion you’ll have to pay a market research firm.

    I published a paper with Hitachi and IBM at DesignCon 2009 that shows how AMI models were used during the design of next-generation disk drives. For those who want to learn more about AMI, a copy of the paper is available at:
