Parallel Link Designer

Analyze PCB designs for parallel link applications


The Parallel Link Designer analyzes PCB designs for parallel link applications for both pre-layout and post-layout simulations. To perform post-layout analysis, you need a license for RF PCB Toolbox™.

Using pre-layout analysis, you can determine system-level noise and timing margins from integrated signal integrity, waveform, timing, and crosstalk analysis. The pre-layout analysis environment generates design guidelines for your board layouts, package layouts, connectors, and cabling. The post layout environment verifies the actual layout against the design guidelines.
