This is the sixteenth in the series of “20 Questions with Wally Rhines”

Electronic design automation (EDA) began and grew with the integrated circuit (IC) design business probably because IC design grew in complexity faster than printed circuit boards. The race for superiority in PCB design evolved in parallel,… Read More


Designing a DDR3 System to Meet Timing

Designing a DDR3 System to Meet Timing
by Daniel Payne on 12-11-2013 at 12:00 pm

My very first thought when hearing about HSPICE is using it for IC simulation at the transistor-level, however it can also be used to simulate a package or PCB interconnect very accurately, like in the PCB layout of a DDR3 system where timing is critical. I attended a webinar this morning that was jointly presented by Zuken and Synopsys… Read More
