E-SystemDesign's Sphinx Version 2.0

Sphinx is a co-simulator for Power and Signal Integrity at the package, board and system level. Its unique algorithms allow larger designs to be analyzed with the accuracy of full 3D solvers. This allows users to have the best of both worlds: accuracy of full 3-D solvers with the performance of fast solvers. All analysis is performed in Frequency Domain and users can view Frequency Responses (Z, S, or Y) parameters, as well as Voltage Distribution. As geometries continue to shrink, discontinuities play a larger role in the analysis. Current generation analysis tools do not correctly account for wrap around currents (WAC), return path discontinuities (RPD), aperture coupling and gap fields. E-SystemDesign's intuitive GUI reduces the complexity engineers deal with when using similar products. Combining these capabilities with supporting large design with accurate results is a big improvement for design engineers.
