Questions about HyperLynx SI/PI(Assigning SPICE/S-parameter, Stack up)

Dear all,

 

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?

 

Thank you.
