Today most of the IC and board designs are undertaken using two-dimensional graphics tools and rule checks. System-in-package is driving three-dimensional design concepts and this is posing a number of challenges for electronic design automation (EDA) software vendors. System-in-package requires three-dimensional EDA tools and design collaboration systems with appropriate manufacturing and assembly rules for these expanding technologies. Simulation and Analysis tools today focus on one aspect of the design requirement, for example, thermal, electrical or mechanical. System-in-Package requires analysis and simulation tools that can easily capture the complex three dimensional structures and provided integrated fast solutions to issues such as thermal management, reliability, electromagnetic interference, etc. This paper discusses some of the challenges faced by the design and analysis community in providing appropriate tools to engineers for System-in-Package desig
