Interesting approach.  What percentage of designs fall into this category?

I'm not sure -- but I'll ask the folks from the company to comment here.

Circuit and system designs start from SPICE simulation.  Starting in 1970's, SPICE only had lumped element models.  Not until 2000's did HSPICE have frequency-dependent lossy transmission line models.  Now in 2010's, engineers need more accurate models (in the form of S parameters) for ALL multi-gigabit designs.  S parameters are still a novelty to many designers.  Easy-to-use mobile-apps-like SI software comes in handy for EEs to create better designs in shorter time.

Very interesting methodology.  At what speed do I need to start thinking about a new method to handle S parameters?

S parameter is a must for designs at above 3 Gbps (or 1.5 GHz).  It's good to use S parameters for designs between 1 and 3 Gbps (or 0.5 to 1.5 GHz).
