IBIS simulation
« on: January 23, 2017, 10:02:33 pm »
Hello guys, i' m working on a new project, (called ArduGen, if anyone is interested  :P), and one IC i want to use comes with an IBIS model. I understand that IBIS is equivalent to SPICE, but faster, the solution almost always converges blah blah, blah.

My question is, does anyone know a Software Simulator for IBIS models, preferably Open Source :)

Thank you in advance, :)

PS. First subject ever yeah :P
My first OSH project ArduGen

Have a look inside the IBIS model file, and see what components it contains.

Normally IBIS models are used to assure signal integrity, not device function. I would expect the IBIS models to describe the I/O characteristics of the pins: inductance, capacitance, voltage-vs-current.
There are lies, damned lies, statistics - and ADC/DAC specs.
Glider pilot's aphorism: "there is no substitute for span". Retort: "There is a substitute: skill+imagination. But you can buy span".
