Can Momentum do it the job?

Hi All,

Over the past few days I have getting pretty frustrated :-[ with Momentum (ADS2006) and am beginning to wonder if we have made the right decision in getting this tool all together.

What I would like to know is if anyone has been able to simulate resonably complex substrate layouts with at least 4 layers? Not simple inductors or hairpin filters etc.

My substrate ~8x6mm has and 2 die an RF (about 30 bond wires) and baseband (about 90 bond wires). There are a few passives too. Basically a typical SiP.

My workstation is a brand new 64Bit Dell 8), 4 GB RAM, 3.2GHz processor, WinXP 64, I have setup 100GB virtual ram. There are very few other apps installed on this machine too, basically a clean installation.

It would be good to know what other engineers have been able to do.
