My team has evaluated Hyperlinx in the past months, and considering the cost
differential compared to more sophisticated
packages (Interconnectix by Mentor) we can say it is pretty accurate. The
difference in accuracy is below the 5%.

For what concerns PADS, I can say that the product concepion and the features
are not alligned to our expectations.
This can be related to the specific application we are dealing with.

Best regards
