NUREMBERG, Germany (European Microwave Week) – Oct. 10, 2017 – NI AWR Design Environment has added process design kit (PDK) support for ON Semiconductor’s integrated passive devices (IPDs) process. Developed in conjunction with NI AWR software experts, the ON Semiconductor IPD PDK is ideal for fabrication of passive devices such as baluns, filters, couplers, diplexers and matching networks that are used in portable, wireless and RF applications.
Implemented in the PDK are electrical models and layout parameterized cells (PCells) that support Microwave Office extraction flow for AXIEM 3D planar electromagnetic (EM) simulation. The PDK also incorporates iNet™ technology for intelligent and automated net routing, designrule checking (DRC) and connectivity checker/highlighter.
