Design007 Magazine/PCBDesign007 | By Yuriy Shlepnev, Simberian | September 11, 2020 |

Simberian has released Simbeor 2021.01, which provides a huge boost of productivity for SI engineers by substantially reducing interconnect model building time. The Simbeor 3DML solver is accelerated by 50-100x on most of PCB/packaging problems.

We tested our Frontal Accelerator first time on Wild River Technology’s CMP-28 and Infinera’s EvR-1 test platforms. Electromagnetic model building for microstrip launch on the CMP-28 took just seven minutes instead of 360 minutes (over 50x acceleration) and model for microstrip launch on EvR-1 took just four minutes instead of 290 minutes (over 70x acceleration). All of this is accomplished with exactly the same accuracy confirmed with the measurements. CMP-28 and EvR-1 Kits with the measured data are available on request. More...
