I would like to ask a question.
What is the EDA tool expected to do when there are two AMI models
in a channel, one which uses the features outlined in this BIRD,
and another one which is an older model without these features.
Does the assumption that the older model without these parameters
must be the "opposite type" apply in this case? If so, should
this be mentioned in the BIRD? (Or is this there already, did
I just miss it)?

Subject: [ibis] BIRD 178.2 recommendation from the ATM group
Hello IBIS Folks,
BIRD 178.2 "Specifying Buffer Directionality for AMI" was discussed
in today's IBIS-ATM teleconference, and a vote was taken to make a
recommendation to the IBIS Open Forum to schedule a vote on it to
approve it (with a minor editorial change) in the next IBIS Open
Forum teleconference with the goal to include the BIRD in the upcoming
IBIS specification which is currently being worked on in the IBIS
Editorial Task Group.
This email serves the purpose of officially relaying this decision
and recommendation to the IBIS Open Forum.
Questions or comments will be addressed in the IBIS Open Forum
teleconference in which this BIRD is scheduled to be voted on.
