All,
As I remember the cost differential was 3x or 4x for XTK vs HyperLynx,
depending on the deal you could cut with Viewlogic(now Innoveda). The only
important difference between the two was segment viewing (single board
application). HL Ver. 6.0, whenever it hits the stands, will incorporate
that, and of course multi-board. The good news, for those of you who
haven't heard, is that HL is part of Innoveda now and Innoveda is actively
integrating the two packages. Two thumbs up! Let's hope they also include
an accurate and painless way to model connectors and cables.
Ken

What???

I didn't know you could beat HL, price-wise... For what the product has
to offer, and for the cost, I can't find an alternative. 'Course yu
could have more functionality, and further capabilites (i.e. SPQ or
ICX), but for LOTS more $$$$$$$$$$$$!

What seems to be wrong with this equation?

Tell you what, just keep doing "test" boards with no simulator, and LOTS
of rules-o-thumb, and spinning them til they're right, and you don't
need a simulator... HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

..Just a PCB Designer... -M-
