Signal Integrity Analysis

Complementing Valydate’s Schematic Integrity Analysis™, we also provide advanced Signal Integrity Analysis for both pre- and post-layout. The Valydate team provides clients with accurate and comprehensive Signal Integrity Analysis reports, including any recommendations to resolve identified issues (removing impedance discontinuities, buffer insertions, driver upsizing, aggressor downsizing, wire shielding, routing changes, etc.).

Valydate Signal and Power Integrity Analysis

Using the latest simulation tools, Valydate analyzes designs early in the hardware development cycle to:

  • Identify which nets and components require simulation.
  • Perform “what-if” scenarios to accurately set design constraints (topologies, bus architectures, etc.)
  • Provide accurate layout constraints to your layout specialists before layout start.
  • Provide board stack-up strategy and definition

Following layout, Valydate re-analyzes designs to:

  • Provide a comprehensive analysis of all selected signals using worst case analysis
  • Identify Reflection Noise due to impedance mis-match, stubs, vias and other interconnect discontinuities.
  • Generate estimated crosstalk tables to increase design efficiency
  • Verify multiple-board and silicon-package-board signal paths
  • Analyze power/ground distribution system characteristics

Valydate uses Signal Integrity Tools such as:

  • Mentor-Graphics HyperLynx
  • Cadence Allegro PCB SI (SPECCTRAQuest)
  • Cadence PSPICE
  • Synopsys HSPICE

Testimonials

"Valydates analysis service identified real errors before we committed our design. This helped us get to market faster with a higher quality product."

Ben Brown
VP Engineering, LTX-Credence

“Valydates Schematic Integrity service has been very useful; not only in finding some issues, but also as a thorough check in verifying that other parts of the design have been done correctly.”

Milan Fait, Alcatel-Lucent HW Design

“A must have process before fabrication to avoid unnecessary re-spin”

VP of Digital Hardware Eng., ATE Solutions Provider

“The service provided to us by Valydate helps us reduce the risk of going in layout with a complex design strategic to our companys growth. Some findings in the report will save us precious time in debugging and we are confident that this first layout will even be the version released to production.”

Andre Lessard, Hardware Manager, Commscope
