Seattle, WA - March 19, 2009 - Simberian, Inc., a developer of leading edge electromagnetic software for high-speed electronic design automation, announced today release of Simbeor® 2008.01. Simbeor 2008.01 is the most cost-effective and comprehensive solution for physical design of PCB and packaging interconnects operating at 6-100 Gb/s and beyond. Simbeor has been updated with new geometry import and selection capabilities, new broad-band SPICE model generator and new fast time-domain simulator.
"Classical signal integrity tools with static field solvers are not reliable at microwave frequencies starting from 3 GHz or 6 Gb/s where the board size becomes comparable or larger than wave-length. As the result, we see more and more customers switching from to 6 Gb/s or high data rates and experiencing design failures because of limitations of their SI tools used to validate the designs" said Dr. Yuriy Shlepnev, president and founder of Simberian Inc. "3D full-wave electromagnetic tools must be used instead to design working interconnects on PCBs and in packages at these data rates. Such tools are typically created for microwave engineers, notoriously hard to use, and very expensive. Simbeor is the industry-first electromagnetic tool developed for the signal integrity and EMI engineers to enable the smooth transition into the microwave domain at low cost. The last update release provides a complete set of features for exploration and verification of interconnects on PCBs."
Features in Simbeor 2008.01 software now include:
· Geometry import from Allegro PCB format to facilitate post-layout verification in Allegro design flow
· Geometry selection for fast and accurate automatic de-compositional electromagnetic analysis of PCB interconnects
· New rational compact and broad-band SPICE model generators to facilitate frequency and time-domain analysis of connectors, packages and complete data links in Simbeor and SPICE solvers
· New fast recursive convolution simulator for time-domain compliance analysis of interconnects
· Auto-connect feature for fast description of schematics for linear channels
· Interpolative frequency sweeps to accelerate electromagnetic analysis
