In-Design EM Analysis for Microwave/RF Design and Verification Workflows
3D finite element method (FEM) and 3D planar method of moments (MoM) have become a standard design practice for ensuring the accuracy of the overall network simulation. However, without proper setup and use of electromagnetic (EM) analysis tools to define the structure and RF excitation (ports), designers can experience erroneous simulation results and/or excessively long simulation times.
This CadenceTECHTALK™ presents key best practices that can help designers achieve accurate simulation results in a short timeframe. In addition, we will highlight CAD techniques for leveraging EM simulation to analyze and optimize designs much more rapidly than by using the sheer brute force of large numbers for distinct EM simulations.
