Workshop on IBIS AMI Model Generation – Bangalore – 8th October 2014

Posted October 1st, 2014 · Please leave a comment · Workshop


We’re offering a hands-on one-day workshop on IBIS AMI model generation in Bangalore, India, 8th October 2014. Registration includes lunch and is free. Simply email or call +91-80-40148740


With increasing data rates of SerDes channels and complexity of the associated digital equalization blocks, classic time-domain simulations with legacy IBIS and SPICE models have slowed to the point where their usefulness is limited. Extremely long simulation times associated with transistor level models and vendor-specific encryption increase the effort required to develop accurate models and decrease model portability. Furthermore, even when such models are developed, simulation throughput is limited and design validation takes a long time. With the release of the IBIS 5.0 in 2008, Algorithmic Modeling Interface (AMI) has provided an Industry- standard way of simulating high-speed serial links with advanced signal processing elements, such as analog filters, FFE and DFE, etc. IBIS-AMI models offer orders-of-magnitude of improvement in simulation time, while IP remains hidden and protected within a compiled executable in binary format called from EDA tools through a standard interface. This standard interface allows AMI models to run on any EDA tools that support IBIS-AMI. With their high flexibility and good IP protection, AMI models have become the choice of many design customers and SerDes vendors.

Take a test drive with Keysight EEsof EDA tools. See how to generate AMI models with easy to use automatic AMI model generation using Keysight SystemVue tool. This complimentary hands-on workshop will give you firsthand experience with the AMI Model Generation and Validation using the power of Keysight EEsof EDA tools
