We see from your search that you're looking for information on the term "Parasitics", and we have a large number of manufacturers' news releases and technical articles here on Electronicstalk which will be of interest. Let me be your guide.
Start with the news release Software slashes nanometre design times from Synopsys, which we summarised at the time by saying "The 2007.12 release Synopsys' PrimeTime suite has managed an average 2X runtime improvement and 33% memory reduction over the 2006.12 release". A couple of weeks before, we featured the news release Dual operating modes boost controller flexibility from STMicroelectronics: "The L6566 selectable multimode controller is suitable for applications such as flyback AC/DC adapters, TV and LCD monitors, small size LCD TVs, high end chargers and other consumer equipment".
In September 2007, we covered the news from Synopsys concerning its DesignWare USB 2.0 nanoPHY - take a look at US systems receive new certification which says: "The DesignWare PHY IP for PCI Express offers a number of dedicated lane configurations from x1 to x8 that support both wire bond and flip chip packages".
Take a look also at the news release from Cadence Design Systems, IC platform cuts design times, as well as EM simulator spreads coverage from Ansoft Europe, and Software extends focus to IC-package codesign from Apache Design Solutions.
