[ibis-macro] Question about Receiver Sensitivity

Hello AMI experts,

I know this was discussed before but it is still not
clear to me how the Rx_Receiver_Sensitivity parameter
is supposed to be used.

This parameter is Type Info, meaning that it is not
passed to the DLL, it is only information for the EDA
tool.  The question is, what is the tool supposed to
do with this?

I assume that if the DLL is written correctly, it would
account for this sensitivity parameter in its algorithms
(for example in CDR), so the EDA tool wouldn't need to
adjust the returned times for the threshold (in)sensitivity.
Is the EDA too expected to do anything with the returned
waveforms when displaying eye diagrams and/or BER plots,
etc...?  If yes, what should be done?  If no, what is
the purpose of this parameter?

Thanks,

Arpad
