Q3D Extractor® is the premier 3-D parasitic extraction software tool for engineers designing multi-layer boards, complex IC packages and 3-D on-chip passive components. Q3D Extractor efficiently performs the 3-D and 2-D electromagnetic-field simulation required for the extraction of RLCG parameters from an interconnect structure and automatically generates an equivalent SPICE sub-circuit model. These highly accurate models can then be used to perform signal integrity analysis to study EM phenomena, such as crosstalk, ground bounce, interconnect delays, and ringing, and to understand the performance of high-speed electronic designs.
