EL SEGUNDO, CA. Oct. 17, 2017 -- The ability to incorporate multiple EM simulators into one circuit design environment has the obvious advantage of decreased setup time and reduced chance of setup error, which shortens design cycles. A new application note, Overcoming Challenges in Integration and Parameterization of EM Simulation Within a High-Frequency Circuit Design Flow, examines the challenges associated with EM simulation within a high-frequency design flow and shows how NI AWR Design Environment, in particular its EM Socket™ architecture, helps address these issues.
The application note covers topics such as process technologies, hierarchy, ports and boundaries, 3D and PDK (library) cells and shape pre-processing, as well as meshing techniques.
