Interconnect Engineering can provide layout design support in addition to signal integrity simulation. Interconnect Engineering can help in the following ways:
Once Interconnect Engineering has simulated all of the interfaces, layout rules can be generated and step-by-step layout support can be employed to ensure the layout is correct. This will off-load your design team’s responsibilities so they can move on to the next design task.
General placement will be reviewed to ensure proper placement with respect to signal integrity and timing goals.
Ensuring via usage is not detrimental to system robustness.
Verifying the stack-up design is appropriate for the system goals.
Ensure single-ended and differential trace width requirements are met.
Verifying crosstalk spacing rules are appropriate for the technologies being meployed.
Ensure length matching of timing groups is satisfied.
Checking power supply design and split plane usage with respect to system robustness.
