Full-wave solvers enable extraction of circuit netlists that correctly represent asymmetric physical structures for higher model accuracy and greater bandwidth. Comprehensive package support XtractIM supports a wide range of IC package types, including both BGA and leadframe. The tool also supports wirebond and flip-chip die attach styles for single-die and SiP implementations. Multi-die designs can include stacked die, side-by-side positioning, and package- on-package approaches. You can extract models for entire packages or for selected nets. XtractIM models can incorporate discrete components (such as on-package decoupling capacitors), more accurately reflecting package power delivery systems and the coupling amongst power, ground, and signal nets. This is particularly important for simultaneous switching output (SSO)/simultaneous switching noise (SSN) analysis. Broadband frequency support XtractIM is the only dedicated package extraction solution to provide broadband multi-stage optimized models. These models offer verifiable accuracy over a specified frequency range and fill a gap between IBIS/RLGC and full-wave S-parameters. With their compact sizes (typically 2% of S-parameter or pole-zero models), you benefit from highly efficient time-domain simulations. The circuit topology of these broadband models implicitly assures passivity, causality, and proper DC behavior. The XtractIM optimization of RLC component values to fit broadband full-wave results is signifi- cantly more accurate than approaches that depend on guesses to distribute single R, L, and C static values for multi- stage circuits. User-friendly workflow XtractIM has an easy-to-use workflow that assists with set-up tasks such as stackup checking, C4 bump and solder ball creation, signal and power/ ground net selection, and defining other extraction parameters. This guidance ensures that extracted models accurately reflect your objectives. You can select either RLGC or broadband model options from a menu in the step-by-step flow. XtractIM provides a variety of options for viewing results and for the analysis of RLC distributions among all the nets. You can export extracted models in a variety of formats to accommodate specific application objectives. Integration • Available for use with Windows and Linux • Interfaces to IC package layout databases from Cadence, Mentor Graphics, Zuken, and AutoCAD • DXF import utility with customization options for leadframe designs • Outputs Model Connection Protocol (MCP) and Chip Package Protocol (CPP) for circuit model connection Figure 2: Intuitive checklist workflow and 3D viewing guides extraction of wirebond package
