Was considering Agilent ADS and EMPro for GbE signal integrity analysis at the network level (e.g., NE crosstalk, insertion loss, return loss). I don't have the Agilent tools but do have access to Cadence.
Has anyone modeled large mil connectors, D38999 types for example, in a Cadence tool? Or imported models from another tool?
I've learned more about our tools: We have “Allegro PCB SI XL” without the “Multi-Gigabit” option.
If I pursue this work, I'll most likely request S-parameters from connector suppliers, then use Matlab/Simulink for signal integrity predictions.
I have no further questions.
