I have a few questions about HyperLynx SI/PI.
1. How to assign SPICE models or S-parameters to passive components like resistors, inductors, beads and capacitors in BoardSim.
I can assign only values or IBIS models to passive components.
For BoardSim, Is there any way to assign SPICE models or S-parameters to passive components besides setting the component type to IC?
2. Stackup Editor - Signal/Plane
As far As I know, signal or plane setting affects the impedance.
1) Do the settings affect PI analysis(DC drop, Decoupling Analysis and Plane Noise Analysis)?
I think they can affect SI and PI analysis because they affect the impedance, inductance and resistance of traces.
But I don't know if my opinion is right.
2) When there are traces and copper areas on a layer, then do I have to set the layer to signal?
