Agilent Technologies (Santa Clara, CA) introduced Agilent EEsof EDA’s Controlled Impedance Line Designer. The software product quickly and accurately optimizes stack up and line geometry for multigigabit-per-second chip-to-chip links, using the most relevant metric. Features include:
- An integrated Controlled Impedance Line Designer and existing Channel Simulator that lets engineers see a set of eye openings that result from sweeping through the pre-layout design parameters (e.g., line width).
- A cross-sectional (2D) electromagnetic field solver.
- A frequency-dependent Svensson/Djordjevic permittivity, which ensures both accuracy and delay causality.
