Signal Integrity

Getting simulation models from silicon/chip vendors can be tough. Leap starting your design with standard-specific Transmitter/Receiver models, and reference channel models, your new design is now a big step ahead. Later you can replace the standards-based models with your actual silicon vendor models to improve the quality of your digital twin. New Highlights: 

  • New AMI Modelers for PCIe Gen 5/6, USB4, and Ethernet uniquely provide a compete reference channel digital twin to obtain a more realistic simulation faster

Introduction to Conducted & Radiated EMI Analysis

Learn about the causes of EMI at the board design stage. Then, find, troubleshoot and analyze the source of Conducted and Radiated EMI leakage issues.

Using Conducted and Radiated EMI in ADS 2023

Complying with EMI standards is necessary step yet performing EMI simulations are not simple. Many designers rely only on measurements, and then retro-fit the modifications, adding cost and delays to the project schedule. Watch this video to see how to easily perform Conducted and Radiated EMI analysis in ADS 2023.
