Digital Oscilloscope with IBIS-AMI

Am I right in thinking the Digital Oscilloscope does not use the full algorithmic part of the IBIS-AMI model and it just uses the I-V analogue model in the IBIS file?


If so, I'm not sure I understand how representative waveform captures are from the Digital Oscilloscope when using AMI models? Can it be relied on for any kind of output when using AMI models or should you always use the AMI channel analyser for this?


Does that mean it's not possible to use the automated sweep features for parameters such as transmission line length, impedance, passive values etc? Is there a way to do this with the channel analyser?


It would be good to understand what exactly the Digital Oscilloscope is doing to understand if the results are useful in this scenario.
