If one were to own Hyperlynx Boardsim for the purpose of doing 3rd party service bureau type board level SI analysis. Is it true that I would need to acquire the PCB layout software in which the board was designed. That is, if the board was designed in Allegro, I need an Allegro license to convert to Hyperlynx and to view the individal layers etc. The same is true for Zuken or PADS, or Orcad.
Thanks for your advice.
