Santa Clara, CA, USA, January 21, 2016: CST – Computer Simulation Technology (CST) and
Wild River Technology (WRT) present first results of their cooperation, aimed to
demonstrate the correlation of simulation and measurement for high speed digital design
at DesignCon 2016, Booth # 627.
New technologies such as DDR 4 and in particular SerDes are pushing electronics to higher speeds.
This has increased the need for 3D electromagnetic field simulation in the design process to identify
and help avoid signal integrity (SI) and power integrity (PI) issues. To simulate devices accurately,
design engineers working in this field require accurate broadband models for interconnects and
transmission lines, which need to include effects such as conductor surface roughness and
dispersion in dielectric materials. Being able to validate the results against benchmarks increases
the engineer’s confidence in the simulation.
