This is a press release that TDA Systems submitted to several =
electronics trade magazines regarding our IConnect(tm) TDR =
measurement-based interconnect modeling software. I thought that this =
group might find it informative in light of recent discussions of =
IPA-510 product. I apologize in advance if anybody does not find this =
information useful to them or appropriate for this discussion group.

Interconnect Measurement and Modeling Software
IConnect(tm) interconnect modeling software dramatically simplifies =
equivalent circuit model extraction from Time Domain Reflectometry (TDR) =
measurements. Using data acquired through a GPIB interface to a =
Tektronix 11801/CSA803 or a Hewlett Packard 54750A/54120 oscilloscope, =
IConnect(tm) computes the true impedance profile of the Device Under =
Test (DUT) and extracts impedance, capacitance and inductance values for =
the device discontinuities. IConnect(tm) automatically generates a SPICE =
netlist for the DUT, which can be directly used for system level =
simulations. An integrated interface to PSPICE allows model simulation =
and verification without leaving the framework of the IConnect(tm) =
software. The measured and simulated waveforms are compared in the same =
waveform viewer, where waveform math and filtering can be used for =
further analysis of discrepancies between the simulation and =
measurement. To ensure customer success with the IConnect(tm) modeling =
software, TDA Systems provides assistance with on-site training and =
consulting on TDR measurements, probing and fixturing solutions. =
IConnect(tm) runs on Windows NT/98/95 and is available March 15, 1999. =
US list price: $12,995 per license. Annual maintenance agreements and =
multi-site discounts are available. For more information, contact Dima =
