Intusoft Releases its Second-Generation IBIS2SPICE Converter
Gardena, CA (August
2, 2004) -- Intusoft announced today the release of its second-generation
IBIS-to-SPICE model conversion software. The enhanced program (IBIS2SPICE
Converter) offers more power and ease of use than Intusoft's former version
released in 1998. The new version supports all 14 IBIS model types, and
converts IBIS models up to and including version 3.2.
IBIS2SPICE Converter has also been a crucial element to the newly announced partnership with SiSoft, a signal integrity design-automation company. Barry Katz, president and CTO for SiSoft, commented that the OEM agreement with Intusoft, which includes Intusoft's IsSpice4 simulation kernel and the IBIS2SPICE Converter, has been a key enabler to penetrate the mainstream PCB signal integrity analysis market.
IBIS is a modeling technique that provides a simple table-based buffer model for semiconductor devices. IBIS models provide nonproprietary information about I/O buffers that are used to characterize I/V output curves, rising/falling transition waveforms and package parasitic information for a variety of digital devices. IBIS only exposes tables of data for device I/O pins, while the generated SPICE model in turn produces corresponding piecewise linear signal representations.
will be included free of charge with the following software packages:
Test Designer, ICAP/4 Professional, ICAP/4Windows Power Deluxe, ICAP/4Windows
RF Deluxe and ICAP/4Windows, in Intusoft's upcoming ICAP/4 software release
in Q3 of 2004. For Intusoft customers currently on maintenance with any
of the above packages, IBIS2SPICE Converter can be downloaded at no charge
from the technical support page at: http://www.intusoft.com/support.htm.
For all others, a former version is available at no cost from http://www.intusoft.com/utilities.htm.
