The recently signed cooperation between Felicitas Customized Engineering GmbH and CadSoft Computer GmbH (London) gives EAGLE users access to the new simulation tool, developed by Felicitas Customized Engineering. Within this cooperation, Felicitas uses EAGLE as a front end for their simulation tool for signal integrity, PCBSim, which will be available through a newly developed interface. PCBSim simulates the signal propagation of high-speed digital systems based on transmission lines, IBIS- and s-parameter models. The tool allows users to analyze and, if necessary, correct a design very early in the design cycle for signal integrity issues. Features include:
• A transmission line calculator.
• An IBIS viewer.
• An s-parameter editor.
• A complete SPICE simulator with special extensions for the simulation of IBIS- and s-parameter models.
