As a member of the Intel Intelligent Systems Alliance, SiSoft has worked closely with Intel to develop design kits that enable designers to perform post-layout of all serial links prior to fab-out, offering designers a huge advantage over testing physical prototypes.

Signal Integrity Software, Inc. (SiSoft™), today announced the availability of three Quantum Channel Designer® design implementation kits for the Intel platform for communications infrastructure with the Intel® Communications Chipset 89xx Series. As a member of the Intel Intelligent Systems Alliance, SiSoft has worked closely with Intel to develop these design kits which offer ‘ready-to-run’ setups allowing designers to quickly perform pre-route design space exploration and easily verify their PCB designs prior to fab-out, a huge advantage over testing physical prototypes. Quantum Channel Designer has the unique capability of enabling designers to perform post-layout on all of their design’s serial links, allowing designers to quickly analyze every link for voltage and timing margins.

Three kits are available now:

  •     Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 family to Intel® Communications Chipset 89xx series PCIe-II
  •     Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2400 family to Intel® Communications Chipset 89xx series PCIe-II
  •     The Intel platform smaller footprint communications systems (including Intel® Xeon® processors E3-1125C and E3-1105C, Intel® Core™ i3-2115C processor, Intel® Pentium® processor B915C, and Intel® Celeron processor 725C (together formerly known as “Gladden”) to Intel® Communications Chipset 89xx series PCIe-II

These kits include encrypted HSPICE® simulation models that require an HSPICE license to run. The kits are available free of charge to Intel customers.
