Validating IBIS Models with Measurements

By Thomas Rutkowski, Huy Nguyen, and Eric Bogatin

We use IBIS models of drivers all the time in routine simulation. In this project, we compare the predicted results of the IBIS model supplied by the vendor, the results from a generic model, and measured results from a randomly selected part. The agreement to measurements is not within the 10% expected metric but is still remarkably close. We introduce a simple methodology to bring measured data from a scope into the HyperLynx simulation environment. Discover more.
