Mentor Graphics New HyperLynx Release
Mentor Graphics New HyperLynx Release Integrates Signal and Power Integrity, 3D-Electromagnetic Solving, and Fast Rule Checking into One Unified Environment. Based on the popular HyperLynx signal integrity/power integrity (SI/PI) application, this product for the first time offers designers a complete set of analysis technology sufficient for designing any type of high-speed digital printed circuit board (PCB). Spanning a wide range of underlying simulation engines and a graphical user interface (GUI) that supports both quick/interactive and exhaustive batch-mode analysis, the HyperLynx product now sets a new standard for deployment of high-speed capabilities in one easy-to-use environment.
Mentor has invested heavily in HyperLynx analysis technology, particularly for interconnect modeling. The product now combines a super-fast geometry extraction engine and advanced materials modeling (for wideband dielectrics, copper roughness, etc.) to produce highly accurate simulations.
“This version of HyperLynx is the culmination of intensive investment by Mentor in its high-speed tools,” stated A.J. Incorvaia, vice president and general manager of Mentor Graphics Systems Design Division. “HyperLynx has long been a widely used high-speed tool in the industry; now it’s become the most powerful and best integrated as well. Designers who still think of HyperLynx as primarily ‘fast and easy SI’ need to take a serious, fresh look at how dramatically the product has strengthened and matured.”
