Agenda
======

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


Arpad: Submit a new BIRD combining 116-118+129
       - done


Arpad: Check if BIRD 158 can be incorporated in BIRD 116-118 as a
       shortcut syntax
         - in progress


Walter:  Write new BIRD for [Repeater/Retimer Pin] keywords
         - not done

Walter:  Email out a spreadsheet with the BIRDs for the next IBIS
         spec version.
        - done

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


4) BIRD prioritization                                (Michel Mirmak)
   - discussion


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


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


7) Analog buffer modeling BIRDs                               (Arpad)
   - BIRDs 116.2, 117.5, 118.4, 129.1 have been combined into BIRD 160
   - BIRD 153.1 Parameter Tree Keyword remained unchanged
   - discussion
   - try to schedule a vote for a recommendation to the Open Forum


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


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


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


11) BIRD 158 AMI Touchstone Analog Buffer Models             (Walter)
    - discussion


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


13) 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?


14) 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?


15) 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.

 
16) 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:
==============

PAM4 BIRD                                                 (Walter)


Thanks,

Arpad
