SiSoft Announces IBIS 6.0 Support at DesignCon 2015

SiSoft’s Products now support IBIS 6.0 models

Santa Clara, CA – January 28, 2015 -- Signal Integrity Software Inc. (SiSoft) announced that it will be demonstrating its Quantum Channel Designer (QCD) and Quantum-SI (QSI) products which now include support for version 6.0 of the IBIS model specification at DesignCon 2015, happening in Santa Clara, CA January 27-30. This update allows designers to use models that leverage the latest and richest features of the IBIS specification to maximize simulation accuracy. 

Most of the new features in IBIS 6.0 are extensions to the IBIS Algorithmic Modeling Interface, or IBIS-AMI. These extensions include new mechanisms for specifying TX and RX jitter, facilities for managing external files associated with algorithmic models and support for repeater (redriver / retimer) devices. SiSoft’s Quantum Channel Designer software fully supports these and other new IBIS-AMI features. 

“Our customers design at the state of the art and push the boundaries of model speed and accuracy,” noted Barry Katz, SiSoft’s president and CTO. “We have been working with major semiconductor vendors over the past several years to make sure that their IBIS-AMI models produce results in QCD that correlate to lab measurements. These efforts allow us to not only support the latest IBIS-AMI syntax, but to base that support on a history of collaboration and correlation.”
