Robust SI Analysis of a DDR2 Interface with HSPICE
For years designers around the world have trusted HSPICE for their signal integrity simulation needs. For video memory and many other applications, increases in chip and board speeds over the last few years have created significant and widespread demand for accurate signal integrity analysis. This tutorial walks through the setup, simulation and analysis of a Synopsys DDR2 memory interface highlighting HSPICE’s signal integrity analysis features.

Predicting PLL Phase Noise & Jitter with HSPICE RF
Due to today’s ever increasing data rates, phase noise and jitter specifications are now critical aspects of modern phase-locked loop design. Accurate predictions of PLL noise are possible through circuit simulation, but the steps required to do so are often shrouded in mystery or considered too challenging to undertake. This tutorial outlines a procedure for efficiently extracting key phase noise and jitter measurements for phase-locked loops using many of the unique simulation capabilities of HSPICE RF.
