[SI-LIST] Re: IBIS question

Stephane-

Unless you zero out the values in the [Package] section of your IBIS
model, those model parasitics will still be in the circuit when you put
the parasitics external to your model in the main spice deck. (you may
be accounting for the parasitics twice).

Also, are you certain that there is no per-pin parasitic info in your
IBIS model? If it is present it will be utilized and the min/max/typ
numbers in the [Package] section will be ignored. (so even if you zeroed
out the min/max/typ numbers you could still be double counting in this
case).

It is a little difficult to determine exactly what you are doing from
the info given in your post, so if I'm barking up the wrong tree just
ignore the suggestions :)
