When designing the interface, the bandwidth is important. Verification Simulation is a cost-effective, post-layout solution that uses a library of previously simulated models to determine whether an interface meets the bandwidth requirements. A limited amount of optimization that compares the PCB material and contactor type also can be incorporated.
For high-speed and ultra-sensitive applications, it is critical to optimize the entire interface. The design of several interface features can be customized to enhance performance, such as component footprints, contactors and trace topology. Optimization Simulation is a rigorous, 3-D electromagnetic system-level method of ensuring that the test interface works the first time.
Many PCB and contactor design standards are created based on mechanical restrictions. By considering both mechanical and electrical parameters, the electrical performance of Multitest’s products is optimized while maintaining mechanical reliability. Multitest continuously improves the design standards of both PCBs and contactors through simulation.
