Ha. Well i would start of reading through quite a few of the links in the attached text document.
For Si I would start with the Si self teach quide, start at page one and work your way through to page 219, supplementing the content via further reading to explain the concepts in more detail, time 2 weeks to a month depending on how much you put into it.
i would also get a basic understanding of the following concepts if you havn't done already.
Speed of electrical signals.
How signals propagate.
Stripline and microstrip.
Fknee=0.5/tr where Tr is 10-90%
Could yo please help me out how to do SI in the Cadstar, I have only experience in the PCB layout and never done the SI practically , Though i know the basic concept and the high speeds guidelines regarding Ringing , Crostalk,Impedance and layer stack up I have also gone through some of the book regarding SI, but does not know about how to calculate ? Could you please provide steps of doing SI in CADSTAR once the board id completely routed? And could you please throw light what exactly we do in SI?
I will be highly obliged if you provide steps to do SI.
I went through the Si self teach guide, over a period of time, started at page one and did everything in the guide in order, that is the best way, its quite a steep learning curve, but can be donein a couple of weeks.
I cant think of any easier way, to use the software properly requires the proper training, there is no simplistic path to getting results.
I have attached MY notes on assigning IBIS models to parts, another critical step in succsesful SI verification.
I'll write more this weekend if BT have fixed my interent.
What I gather is you want to apply SI to your circuit?
As said I'll dig out my notes and provide a basic guide, will take a couple of days to find and compile my material as its on one of my home systems.
