PCB/MCM Signal Integrity has interfaces that allow it to automatically read-in and characterize an entire PCB or MCM designed in Cadence's Allegro or Mentor Graphics' BoardStation. During the analysis, the designer can choose whether to analyze particular structures and nets in full 3D or a mixed 2D and 3D solution. Any type of non-ideal power or ground plane (partial plane, split plane, random holed or meshed plane) can be analyzed. PCB/MCM can also analyze single-chip, few chip, or multi-chip (system-on-package) designs from Cadence's Advanced Package Designer

Ansoft announced a new release of PCB/MCM Signal Integrity, version 3.7, a member of Ansoft's family of Signal Integrity (SI) tools. The high-performance sector of the PCB design industry is increasingly relying on extremely fast edge rates to drive next-generation designs. PCB/MCM SI is the only signal integrity tool that addresses the high-speed/high-performance PCB needs for optical networks, memory interfaces, and multi-gigabit transmission systems.
