in order to be completely flexible in this respect, we (HARTING, a
medium-sized connector-manufacturer) developed a flexible configurable
SPICE-model creation-tool for our cPCI-connectors harbusHM as well as for
other connectors like the 2.5mm multipin connector har-pak or the
VME64x-connector harbus64. This tool mainly consists of the program
F2SWIN.EXE (Finite-element to SPICE converter) that creates standard
SPICE-subcircuits, where Your only interface to the system-environments are
clearly indicated node-numbers. The generated subcircuit consists of
L-C-Ck-KL elements in Pi-wiring. It uses a GUI that enbles the arbitrary
placement of signal, ground and float inside a 5x5 pin and column matrix of
the connector pin-area. The basis are 2 1/2- and 3-dimensional FEM-analysis
raw-data (Ansoft-software). It enables a user-defined model-complexity.
This should normally work in all simulation-environments that are able to
handle SPICE-conform subcircuits. A HLP-file that describes the usage in
detail is available. The software and models are available under special
