I've had good luck, I think with TDR and the Tek IPA510 software. It does
take some time getting used to and the manual is not real robust but I have
seen very good comparisons of TDR traces vs simulations after I was done.
It seems to want to have Zo segments and does not do as well with lumped
elements. I've looked mostly at short runs on circuit boards.

Dima, Ray,

thanks for your input! However, the relative small number of
replies leads me to the conclusion that most SI-List listeners
have little experience with equivalent circuit modeling tools.
So, I would like to ask how you all usually extract circuit
models for e.g. interconnects, packages etc. ? Do you rely
e.g. on formulas as found in textbooks like the "Transmission
Line Design Handbook" from Wadell?

Thanks in advance, best regards,

Ch. Schuster
