HyperLynx Signal Integrity Analysis


Duration: 2 Days
Pricing: 1,300 EUR
Course Part Number: 213160

The HyperLynx Signal Integrity Analysis course was developed to help you understand basic signal integrity, crosstalk, EMI concepts and gain proficiency in signal integrity, crosstalk, and EMI analyses, pre and post layout.

Detailed lab exercises help reinforce what is discussed during the lectures and provide you with extensive tool usage experience under the guidance of our industry expert instructors.

You will learn how to

  • Create and simulate LineSim cell-based and free-form schematics
  • Investigate termination strategies
  • Investigate stack-up strategies
  • Translate design databases
  • Identify and debug SI and Crosstalk issues
  • Read eye diagrams and how to specify a mask
  • Simulate EMC and evaluate the results
  • Assign models and component values
  • Evaluate SI and Crosstalk issues
  • Translate PCB layout databases
  • Run BoardSim simulations interactively and in batch mode
  • Run BoardSim for both single and multi-board projects
  • Evaluate batch mode simulation reports to identify potential problems

Hands-On Labs

Throughout this course, extensive hands-on lab exercises provide you with practical experience using HyperLynx software. Hands-on lab topics include:

  • LineSim free-form and cell-based schematic creation, editing stack-up, assignment of models and component values
  • Compare theoretical values with simulation results
  • Manual and automatic waveform measurements of overshoot, flight-time and crosstalk.
  • Evaluating the effects of different impedance matching strategies, topologies, technologies and stack-ups in LineSim
  • Create, test, and debug IBIS models
  • Add model libraries using different methods in BoardSim
  • Perform Batch Mode Quick Analysis in BoardSim and review the report
  • Perform Batch Mode Detailed Analyses in BoardSim and analyze the reports
  • Interactively simulate different scenarios to fix problems in BoardSim
  • Document and forward annotate changes made in BoardSim
  • Analyze nets using eye diagrams and SPICE simulations
  • Set up and simulate nets between boards using multi-board projects
