Compute environments have advanced significantly over the past several years. Microprocessors have gotten faster by including more cores, available RAM has increased significantly, and the cloud has made massive distributed computing more easily and cheaply available.
HFSS has evolved to take advantage of these new capabilities,… Read More

The tools for designing packages were completely separate from the tools used to design IC’s. This was so profoundly true that even after Cadence merged with Valid Logic back in the early 90’s, their Allegro … Read More
RFIC developers used to favor mature silicon processes, typically staying back a couple of nodes behind the leading edge. This bought foundries time for ‘RF-enabling’ their PDKs, and also maximized return on investment for developing RF models and infrastructure IP. Not the case any more, it seems. To address the insatiable … Read More
