Simberian Inc. touts the first 3D electromagnetic (EM) synthesis tool to design minimal-reflection and low-loss elements for broadband interconnects with the latest release of its Simbeor tool.

Aimed at communication links operating at 6- to 10Gbit/s, the Simbeor 2008 software includes new minimal-reflection transmission line and via-hole geometry synthesis modules, new linear solver to support end-to-end analysis of a data channel as well as other new features and usability enhancements.

Other key features include a geometry synthesis wizard for single and differential lines in any signal or plane layer of a stackup, multi-pole Debye and complex multi-pole models for dielectrics, and adaptive frequency sweep to accelerate EM analysis. Simbeor 2008 runs on any PC with Windows 2000/XP/Vista (32- and 64bit) and compatible OS.

U.S. list price for annual node-locked license with Level 1 features is $4,500 and with Level 3 features is $7,500. Network or floating licenses are also available. Software updates are included with an annual license. A free version is available with limited capabilities.
