SI Experts, I just learned about SSN/SSO capability of the Allegro SI tool. Is anybody out there who has used this and is willing to share her/his experience? Among things of interest that come to my mind are: Model types used for package/board (lumped, distributed, narrow band, wide band, S-parameter, …) and driver/receiver (IBIS, Spice, …)? Simulator option used, tlsim or Hspice? By the way, I also hear that Spectre will become an option soon. And the ultimate qualifier: How do simulation results correlate with measurements?
Hi, I would recommend that you start reading the following two papers also found on this site. One is a presentation and the other a presentation. http://www.cadence.com/community/allegro/Resources/resources_pcbsi/si/tp_Power_Integrity_flamm.pdf http://www.cadence.com/community/allegro/Resources/resources_pcbsi/si/tp_PI_flamm.ppt You could also contact Cadence and try to get in touch with Juergen Flamm who wrote the papers.
