Agilent Technologies (Santa Clara, CA) introduced a physics-based model for its opto model library that quickly and accurately solves the challenges posed by signal distortion in vertical cavity surface emitting lasers (VCSELs) used in rack-to-rack opto links. The new VCSEL model, available in the Advanced Design System 2013 Transient Convolution Element and SystemVue 2013 AMI Modeling Kit, is used both for modeling optoelectronic components and designing them into equipment. Features include:
- Input/Output Buffer Information Specification (IBIS) AMI flow.
- BIRD-156 extends the AMI flow.
- Allows both electrical and optical repeater links to be modeled.
