    Sumilate the splits plane and gaps effect on SI, PI and EMC ?


      Dear Mentor Support Team,


      I am very interested to know and find a solution to simulate the effect split plans and gaps in Signal Integrity, Power integrity and EMI.

      I would like also to know if there is a solution to configure Hyperlynx SI & PI simulators to take into account the effect of Splits and Gaps in the reference plane particularly the effect of the "NO IDEAL RETURN PATH" on SI, PI and EMI?


      I also find a similar question with an interesting answer (link) that refers to some Technote, but links are not found!


      TechNote MG77086: Setting Up Traces Coupled to Areafills

      TechNote MG27602: Simulating the Effects Traces Going Over Split Planes

      TechNote MG61444: Analyzing Signal Traces Routed on Plane Layers or Within Area-fills


      Could you please share with me the up to date links?

      Kind Regards,
