Increase the simulation time for FAST EYE channel characterization

I'm trying to simulate a PCIe gen 2 (5 Gbps) link in Hyperlynx SI 8.2.1


My required path is : FPGA-->connector--> 3 m cable --> connector --> FPGA


I'm not able to get any Pulse or Step response during FAST EYE characterization for 5Gbps if i add the 3m PCIe cable (part no: molex #74546-0403)  to my path, The simulation time is only 10nS (ELDO is used as simulator)




I'm able to get the normal oscilloscope eye diagram output


Connector and cable i'm using s parameter models and FPGA i'm using IBIS AMI models



Could someone help me resolve this issue ?


Will i get output if i increase the simulation time ? If so could someone help me how to do that ?
