Gauss Stack – Link to Gauss 2D for Deeper SI Analysis
Transfer to Gauss 2D
Once you have completed your assessments for Manufacturability, Reliability, and your first pass for Signal Integrity, you can simply send a transmission line to Gauss 2D for simulation. All necessary data to conduct a simulation is automatically transferred to Gauss 2D, so you simply need to click the Analyze button and you’re ready to conduct additional post-processing and deeper Signal Integrity analysis, such as working with S-Parameters and broadband frequency-dependent properties.
Deeper Signal Integrity Analysis
Once you have transferred a transmission line for simulation in Gauss 2D, after running Analysis, you can view, plot, and export S-Parameters (2 Port for Single Ended, or either 4 Port or Mixed Mode for Differential) or view, plot, and export Frequency Dependent Impedance, Loss, and RLGC. Additionally, you can assess the impact of manufacturing tolerances on Impedance and Dielectric, Conductor, and Insertion Loss, by conducting Multivariate Monte Carlo simulations in the Uncertainty Analysis utility.
You can simulate any of hundreds of predefined geometries, including several not available in Gauss Stack, including Coplanar Waveguides. The transfer from Gauss Stack allows you to simulate these geometries using the same dielectric properties & thicknesses, as well as the same copper thicknesses specified in your stackup in Gauss Stack. Multiconductor buses of Striplines and Microstrips can also be run in Gauss 2D for a first-pass study of EMI concerns, as well.
