At the IBIS Summit February 2, 2012 (co-located with DesignCon 2012), we published a joint paper with Avago:
My thanks to the authors Sanjeev Gupta and Amolak Badesha of Avago and Fangyi Rao and Jing-tao Liu of Agilent
With the upcoming release of SystemVue 2012 and ADS 2012 we’re including this capability in our products:
- For model builders we have a SystemVue addon, the W1714 AMI Modeling Kit. The output is in an extended IBIS AMI format.
- For model consumers we have ADS 2012 High Speed Digital Products that add an extention to IBIS AMI models from SystemVue not only for midchannel repeater but also opto link modeling.
- In addition we have a lighter, “all-in-one” edition for architects who want to experiment with SERDES, mid-channel repeater, and opto link archicture, but who don’t need to generate models for ADS, nor to design the channel itself in ADS. In this case, you can use a simple S2P file for the channel or co-simulate with ADS if needed. This lighter, “all-in-one” product is called W1713 SerDes Model Library.
We’re very excited to bring these unique capabilities to you and are looking forward to your feedback. Please contact us to evaluate our beta versions. General release is scheduled for the second half of 2012.
