Perhaps that's where I have seen your name.

I am a new user to Hspice, and SpecctraQuest for that matter. But the
opinions of my team leaders is that the tools that are able to do analysis
on complete boards and board-to-board interconnects are not as accurate as
Hspice. And Hspice is more accurate, however, the analysis of complex (many
connections) boards is very difficult.

Note that the "less accurate" and "more accurate" statements are the
opinions of others and not necessarily quantifiable.

Hi Anthony,

No, neither Nortel, nor Univ of Western Ontario. Maybe you've seen my name
on the list or something.

The reasoning behind my question is that the platform on which you're
running the other tools might give some pointers to the H-SPICE platform
choice. Actually, since you're going with SPECCTRAQuest, I don't really see
the need for H-SPICE for the so-called "fewer, critical nets". On these
nets, what is it you're looking for SPICE to provide that SPECCTRAQuest
can't? I'm not saying there is never room for co-existance, because there
often is. It's just the "more accurate" thing that intrigues me.

Regards,
Tony

Hi Tony;

First, your name sounds familiar and I'm wondering if we have met somewhere.
Have you every worked at Nortel or gone to school at the University of
Western Ontario?

Anyway, our strategy is to use SpecctraQuest by Cadence to identify critical
nets on board level and board-to-board interconnects. Hspice will be used to
get a more accurate analysis of the fewer, critical nets.

Any thoughts?

Anthony,

What tool are you using, or proposing to use, as your 'main' SI tool? That
is, what will you be using to analyze board-level and board-to-board
interconnects during the actual design creation stages?

Tony Dunbar
