Cadence Virtuoso RF for RFIC and SiP Design With AXIEM EM Technology

The AXIEM Electromagnetic (EM) simulator in NI AWR software is now integrated with the Cadence Design Systems Virtuoso RF solution, providing designers with an integrated circuit (IC), package/module design flow that improves productivity by eliminating the design failures caused by the manual translation of data. A single golden schematic is used for simulation, layout versus schematic (LVS), and EM analysis and verification, without the need for unique schematics for EM and LVS.

This application note examines how the new unique Virtuoso RF /AXIEM EM integrated solution enables designers to perform EM analysis to isolate and characterize critical traces within the complex multi-layer configurations of today’s modern applications.
