In-Design EM Analysis for Microwave/RF Design and Verification Workflows

In-Design EM Analysis for Microwave/RF Design and Verification Workflows
by Admin on 04-13-2022 at 12:00 am

Overview

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

Symmetry Requirements Becoming More Important and Challenging

Symmetry Requirements Becoming More Important and Challenging
by Tom Simon on 08-24-2021 at 10:00 am

Symmetry across the design flow

Humans certainly have always had an aesthetic preference for symmetry. We also see symmetry showing up frequently in nature. The importance of symmetry in electronic designs has been apparent for decades. There are a host of analog structures that require balanced layout. For instance, these include differential pairs and … Read More

SKillCAD Creating a Metal Bus

Despite the large role of place and route in IC design, there will always be a need for custom layout design. This is particularly true in radio frequency (RF), power management (PM) and power amplifier (PA) circuits, among others. Cadence Virtuoso is by far the leading tool for creating these custom designs. Virtuoso has a sophisticated… Read More

Mentor SerDes Simulation

Over the years SerDes (serializer/deserializer) based connections have proliferated into just about every connection within and among computing systems. Years ago, parallel interfaces were the most common method of moving data, but issues of signal integrity, synchronization and power simply became too much for the required… Read More

Cadence acquires AWR

Mergers and acquisitions are just a fact of modern business life, so the semiconductor, IP and EDA industries all can benefit, but only when the two companies have complementary products with some actual synergy. Cadence acquired OrCAD back in 1999, adding a Windows-based PCB tool to their product lineup, and here in 2019 some … Read More
