Achieving signal integrity becomes increasingly difficult as silicon processes shrink. Analysis tools can find many signal-integrity problems, but it is accurate models that can help turn the tide. Silicon Metrics' SiliconSmart SI tool provides the improved driver models required by the latest noise-analysis tools to nail down slippery signal-integrity issues.

SiliconSmart SI includes a modeling module that supports the Synopsys and Cadence signal-integrity tool suites. Support for all Synopsys Liberty noise-model constructs includes drivers, noise immunity, and noise propagation. The tool also includes intelligent measurement planning to accelerate signal-integrity characterization.

The tool is configurable to support a range of signal-integrity modeling levels. These levels match modeling-construct support to the analysis capabilities of a given signal-integrity tool, allowing tradeoff of characterization complexity with analysis capability across multiple tools. Modeling level support and capacity are scalable to meet future needs.
