IBIS-AMI models are the ubiquitous choice for the most challenging simulation tasks, but which type of AMI model should I use when? What are their strengths and limitations? This year's AMI Panel examines vendor, template, library, spec, bit-stream/statistical and home-grown models, explaining the strengths and limitations of each. While the days of not having a model are over, what is the secret to succeeding amidst the myriad of options? Does the answer vary by application – particularly new applications such as DDR5? Join us for another insightful discussion to learn timely answers to these questions and more.


* How to acquire or construct an AMI model when it is not available. * Understand the types of AMI models, and the strengths/limitations of each. * What you need to know to succeed with the new applications for AMI.

Intended Audience

Attendees should have an interest in or understanding of serial links, AMI models, SerDes/Serial and/or DDRx simulation, and analysis tools.
