HyperLynx SI Opens the Door for New Business at GateWave Northern

GateWave Northern had provided signal integrity analysis in the test socket, probe card, and signal path market. When a customer asked if they could provide SI on their PCB, GateWave leaped at the chance, acquiring HyperLynx SI. Within just a few days, they were able to execute a full SI analysis and located problems that would have made the board fail.

All these things come together to make HyperLynx SI not only technically accurate, but a pleasure to work with.”

Gert Hohenwarter, GateWave Northern

 The Problem

GateWave Northern found an opportunity to expand their IC signal integrity analysis services into printed circuit boards. They had several challenges with their first project:

  • Conduct signal integrity analysis on a multi-board PCB data acquisition product
  • First time using HyperLynx for signal integrity
  • Success with this project could lead to new business opportunities for GateWave

The Solution

GateWave had tried competitive products and found them very difficult to learn and use. With HyperLynx SI, not only were they able to provide accurate signal integrity analysis for their customer, but they were able to learn the tool and produce results within a few days of acquiring the tool.

The Results

On their very first project, they discovered some grounding errors that would have caused the design to fail! With the analysis in hand, the customer corrected the errors and produced a viable product on the first spin…and landed the business they were after.

I pulled my hair out trying to use your competitor’s product.”
