The HyperLynx product family has a complete line of simulation products for PCB design. It has both Pre- and Post-Layout simulations. The GUI is very much like an oscilloscope, making it intuitive to view step response or continuous waveforms. A termination wizard calculates the optimal termination values and strategy. It has a wide library of models, and you can find more IBIS models from the semiconductor vendors web sites.
Hyperlynx can be used with most PCB Design tools.
HyperLynx SI is the basic signal integrity package. It is quick and easy to use. The basic SI is included in the PADS Standard Plus and Professional packages.
HyperLynx DDRx has additional functionality to analyze DDR designs. It has wizards to help setting up topology, controller, and memories as well as the simulations. DDRx supports DDRs up to DDR4. Parametric sweeps are enabled.
HyperLynx SI GHz brings in more features like analysis of fast serial signals using an eye diagram and eye mask. It contains more tools like IBIS Viewer, Z0 Planner, Crosstalk, multi-board analysis, parametric sweeps, advanced trace modeling, frequency-dependent losses, decomposition via modeling.
HyperLynx PI supports both DC-Drop and AC analysis. It also stimulates the temperatures. The DC Drop is extremely easy to use and quickly shows the possible bottlenecks in the current flow. AC analysis simulates the noise levels in the impact of decoupling. AC analysis helps optimize the decoupling strategy – what kind of caps are needed and where.
HyperLynx DRC is an extended functionality design rule checker that is able to batch analyze a board’s EMC/EMI behavior. It is scriptable, and in a typical application, a number of checks are scripted. This helps to make sure that the checks are executed and shortens the “items to check”-list.
HyperLynx Full-Wave Solver is a 3D, wideband electromagnetic solver for SI, PI, and EMI-problems.
HyperLynx Fast 3D Solver allows the building of full package models and supports multiprocessing to speed up the simulation.
HyperLynx Thermal is 3D-simulator to investigate the behavior of placement and traces in the thermal domain. It takes thermal conductivity, convection, and radiation into account. It can reach an accuracy of +/- 10%.
