Simberian to Demo Simbeor THz Software at DesignCon 2019January 28, 2019 | Yuriy Shlepnev, Simberian
Estimated reading time: 1 minute
Simberian Inc. will participate in the DesignCon 2019 conference and exhibition, January 29-31 at the Santa Clara Convention Center. Simberian will be presenting Simbeor THz electromagnetic signal integrity software, updated with distributed computing on the Linux platform, Simbeor SDK module with API for design automation in C/C++ and Matlab, and with completely automated post-layout de-compositional electromagnetic analysis.
The updated Simbeor THz is the industry-first tool with the validated automatic post-layout de-compositional electromagnetic analysis; almost all structures on test boards can now be simulated without manual adjustments. To accelerate pre- and post-layout electromagnetic analysis, Simbeor 3DML and 3DTF solvers in the updated Simbeor THz are parallelized on a loosely coupled grid of Linux computers available over internal, worldwide or cloud networks (only Windows version was previously supported). It further reduces the cost of PCB/packaging interconnect design.
The distributed computing on the Linux platform further reduces the cost of PCB/packaging interconnect design and strengthens Simbeor’s No. 1 position in the electromagnetic SI software price-performance category. Simbeor THz technologies are now available as Simbeor software development kit or Simbeor SDK.
Simberian’s technology and achievements are recognized at DesignCon 2019 with two nominations for the prestigious industry awards. The paper by A. Manukovsky, Y. Shlepnev, "Effect of PCB Fabrication Variations on Interconnect Loss, Delay, Impedance & Identified Material Models for 56-Gbps Interconnect Designs," co-authored by Intel and Simberian, has been chosen by the Technical Program Committee as a finalist for the DesignCon 2019 Best Paper Award. This marks the third time that Simberian’s founder Yuriy Shlepnev has been selected by the SI community as a finalist for the DesignCon Engineer of the Year Award.
Simbeor SDK provides API to solvers and tools and can be used for design automation with scripting in C/C++ and Matlab languages and as a component in other EDA tools. Simbeor THz, Simbeor Agent for Linux and Simbeor SDK are now available for customers and trials at www.simberian.com.
One of my great joys as a grandfather of eight is spending time with them at the park. It doesn't take too long until I'm getting stuck on a slide that is too small for me or on the seesaw, with me on one side and them trying to lift me. At that point, they learn some harsh lessons in physics and how heavy Grandpa really is. A seesaw is a relatively simple device, but it’s a great way to explain a rather complex concept in PCB design: design tradeoffs. Each decision made throughout a design comes with inherent pros and cons.
Spirit AeroSystems, Inc. announced the grand opening of its Engineering Design Center in Subang, Malaysia, that expands the company’s global engineering capabilities, during opening day of the 2024 Singapore Air Show.
It’s been another busy week in the industry. We lost another old friend last week. The EIPC show happened, and Pete Starkey provided us with complete and compelling show coverage, from start to finish. Recently, we posed the question, “When is it time to introduce embedded components into your PCB design?” which was asked and answered by design aficionado Kris Moyers in the latest issue of Design007 Magazine. We are proud to be a part of the exciting Global Insights weekly newsletter, which Nolan Johnson and Brian Knier explored in their interview, and we rounded out the week with some big merger news. Here are my picks for the past week’s must-read news items.
ROCKA Solutions is pleased to announce its partnership with Vega Industries, Inc., a manufacturer of premium-quality driver bits and fastener driving tools. Under this collaboration, ROCKA Solutions is a distributor for Vega Industries' top-notch tools designed for precision and durability.
Aismalibar will be attending the APEC, the leading conference for practicing power electronics professionals, in Long Beach, California from February 25th to 29th, 2024 in Booth 552. Aismalibar will be presenting new cooling technologies for power electronics, specifically Thermal Interface Materials (TIMs) and Insulated Metal Substrates (IMS).
