Mated Model files for connectors are NOT readily available. Usually, the connector vendors provide SPICE or S-parameter models of their connectors. You can include these into an ICX 4.0 specific model file to use them in IS_MB if you want. The syntax is described in the ICX Modeling Guide.
If you are going to simulate only a few of this type of net, I suggest that you do it in HyperLynx LineSim. For pre-route and special model cases, LineSim is much more flexible. You can get the circuit set up and ready to simulate faster.
If you are going to simulate many nets and multiple systems of this type, then it is worth the time to create the Mated Model file for ICX and run your simulations in ICX.
thanks for the answer.
I have no experience in using Spice, I'll give it a try in Hyperlynx.
Using SPICE models in HyperLynx still requires some knowledge of SPICE. HyperLynx takes care of a lot of the netlist for you, but you need to get the model in a .subckt block and you need to know a little bit about what is in the model. If you need help with a specfic model after trying to set it up, you can open a service request on SupportNet.mentor.com.
