I have successfully modeled Linesim and boardsim schematics for quite a few designs in the past and we have been able to do the required SI simulations. I had one question though: On one of our multi-board designs, we connect one board to the other using DE-50 pogo pin by IDI and they do not give any R,L and C values for the pins. They just specify the Length = 1.703", Diameter = 30mils and Resistance of 50 mohms. What is best way to model a pogo pin or any other connector for that matter in Hyperlynx LineSim / BoardSim? Any suggestions? I would think that the best way to do this is to have a lumped circuit equivalent for pogo pin but the manufacturer wouldn't provide any parasitic values.

Thanks for the help.

What frequency range are you interested in? – Andy aka May 16 '13 at 7:23
We are testing them at 2-3Gbps. It's a SATA interface. – user23960 May 17 '13 at 1:23
