Standalone executables are provided. You must download these in a manner allowing you to run the executables with required arguments. No installer is provided. Executables for ibischk6 are available for the following platforms:
The full set of executables is available in one ZIP archive ibischk6.1.4_all.zip.
* Beginning with RHEL 5 the compiler made automatic stack protection the default. The compiler determines the maximum stack size needed for each function call and inserts code that writes some known garbage data at the end of the stack before the call, then checks it after the call. If it doesn't match, the OS__stack_chk_failed function is called, which exits with an error message. There is a problem running such code on a Linux release that doesn't have that system function. Those releases still exist, RHEL 4.9 was retired only in 2011. IBISCHK started using stack protection in the 5.1.4 version, 5.1.3 and earlier did not have it. This compilation returns to not using stack protection, and should be compatible with a wide range of Linux releases.
** Some differences might exist between the 32-bit and 64-bit compilations. For example, the "... equivalent load applied to the model's I-V tables ..." for W1503 calculates 1.42V on 64 bit machines and 1.43V on 32 bit machines for the same test case.
SHA1 digests are shown below for checking the integrity of each official release executable above. Unzip the contents of the ZIP file above and save the SHA1 checksum file ibischk6_sha1.txt (contents shown below). Then run "sha1sum -c ibischk6_sha1.txt". The report for each file should be "ok" (may need Unix, Linux, or Cygwin):

When “ibischk6” is run with no arguments, IBISCHK6 prints this help message:
IBISCHK6 V6.1.4 IBISfile validation: This program has been provided free to the electrical engineering community by the IBIS Open Forum. The purpose of this program is to validate that the contents of ASCII device data in a file specified conform to the IBIS specification. Usage: ibischk6
: ibischk6 -ebd : ibischk6 -pkg : ibischk6 -ami Usage: ibischk6 -caution -numbered : ibischk6 -caution -numbered -ebd : ibischk6 -caution -numbered -pkg : ibischk6 -caution -numbered -ami The flags prior to the file name can be in any order, and the -caution and/or -numbered flags are optional.
One (and only one) file name argument must be provided to perform checking, and the file name extension must be consistent with the file type flag. Independent .ebd, .pkg and .ami file checking is done using the -ebd, -pkg and -ami flags. The -caution flag produces additional Caution messages for all [IBIS Ver] versions. The -numbered flag produces Error, Warning, Notes, and Caution messages with four digit numbers following E, W, N, and C respectively.
NOTE: IBISCHK6 User Guide Version 6.1.4 will be provided soon.
Versions 6.0.0 and 6.0.1 of ibischk6 support IBIS Version 6.0. Version 6.1.0 of ibischk6 supports IBIS Version 6.1. See the IBISCHK BUG page for full details on bug history, or to report a bug or enhancement.
