Agenda
======

1) Opens
2) Call for any related patent disclosures
3) Review of ARs:



Any other AR-s?


Old ARs:

Arpad:  Review the documentation (annotation) in the macro libraries.
        - deferred until a demand arises or we have nothing else to do


BIRD 155
Walter's PAM4 BIRD
Overview of BIRDs, high level topical summary


4) High level overview of BIRDs we need to work on    (Arpad Muranyi)
   (to get the "big picture")

   - AMI related BIRDs:

     - BIRD 131     IBIS-AMI Repeaters
     - BIRD 156     IBIS-AMI Extension for Mid-channel Redriver
     - BIRD 147/128 Back-channel support
     - BIRD 150     IBIS-AMI New Reserved Parameters for Dependency Tables
     - BIRD 155     New AMI API to Resolve Dependent Model Parameter
     - BIRD 154     Using IBIS-AMI Leaf Labels in List Parameters


   - Analog (buffer, die interconnect and package related) BIRDs:

     - BIRD 116  Add IBIS-ISS to [External Model] and [External Circuit]
                 as a Supported Language
     - BIRD 117  Parameterize A_to_D and D_to_A Converters
     - BIRD 118  Analog Parameter Assignments
     - BIRD 129  Add "polarity" Argument to D_to_A Converters
     - BIRD 152  Analog Model Boundary Definition (Accepted on 6/1/2012)
     - BIRD 153  Parameter Tree Keyword

     - BIRD 125  Make IBIS-ISS Available for IBIS Package Modeling

     - BIRD 122  IBIS-AMI New Reserved Parameters for Analog Modeling

     - BIRD 144  Add Touchstone to [External Model] and [External Circuit] as a 
Supported Language
     - BIRD 145  Cascading IBIS I/O buffers with [External Circuit]s using the 
[Model Call] keyword


5) BIRD 155 New AMI API to Resolve Dependent Model Parameter (Fangyi)
   - introduction
   - discussion


6) BIRD 156 IBIS-AMI Extension for Mid-channel Redriver      (Fangyi)
   - introduction
   - discussion


7) BIRD 131  IBIS-AMI repeaters,  "Redriver" proposal (Walter/Fangyi)
   - questions, comments?


8) BIRD 147  Back-channel support                           (Ambrish)
   - update, questions, comments?


9)  BIRD 128  Allow AMI_parameters_out to pass AMI_parameters_in
              data on calls to AMI_GetWave
    - update, questions, comments?


10) BIRD 154  Using IBIS-AMI Leaf Labels in List Parameters  (Walter)
    - update, questions, comments?


11) Info, Out, InOut BIRD                                     (Arpad)
    - latest wording includes "in order to be compliant with this
      specification, Model_Specific parameters ... must not ...",
      and omits the word "simulation" so it's meaning doesn't have
      to be defined
    - questions/comments/discussion?


12) Eye Mask definition                                       (Arpad)
    - Rx_Receiver_Sensitivity is the equivalent of the vertical
      (or voltage) part of an eye mask.  It would make sense to
      define the horizontal (timing) portion of the eye mask also.
    - questions/comments/discussion?


13) DLL error trapping and return codes                 (Greg Edlund)
    - address the nasty condition where the DLL and tool crash
      without a trace.  The EDA vendor says, "I can't help you
      because I can't see inside the model."  The model vendor
      says, "I can't help you because I don't own that tool."
      The user is left with a non-functional model.

 
14) What is the purpose of the specification?  Describe the syntax
    and rules of the syntax, or tell the reader how to make models?
    - questions/comments/discussion?


Tabled topics:
==============


"AMI_ResolveDependentParam" function proposal             (Fangyi)

BIRD 150, Dependency Table                                (Walter)


Thanks,

Arpad
