PCI Express Gen3 (PCIe Gen3) specifies a high-speed differential I/O interconnect that runs at 8.0 Gbps. It has many benefits, and it also presents a critical challenge. PCIe, using high-speed 8-Gbps serial links, can suffer from a large array of physical phenomena and this can lead to excessive EMI emissions in large systems. Fortunately, there… (Show more)

Python is a programming language that lets you work quickly and integrate systems more effectively. It’s been used in many areas such as Statistical Analysis, or Artificial Intelligence; and it is also very useful in Device Modeling. Today we are going to introduce the Python integration with Keysight IC-CAP device modeling platform (version 2013… (Show more)

How exactly do you simulate the RF performance of Narrowband IoT (NB-IoT), a standards-based, low-power wide area technology developed to enable a wide range of new IoT devices and services? That’s the question ASTRI— Hong Kong’s Applied Science and Technology Research Institute—faced when it discovered that the RF performance specified in the… (Show more)

Model Builder Program (MBP) is a one-stop solution that provides both automation and flexibility for silicon device modeling. MBP Script is a Java™ based scripting language, where no compilation is required at the user end. MBP Script runs equivalently on Windows and Linux. Many MBP-specific APIs(Application Program Interface) and high-efficiency… (Show more)

Say you are designing a power amplifier using a particular transistor. You have run load pull simulations on the transistor, possibly at different source frequencies. Is it possible to use this simulated load pull data to help determine which of numerous impedance matching network parameter values would give the best performance (satisfying gain,… (Show more)

The Internet of Things (IoT) fulfills a promise of a more efficient and connected world. But with dozens of devices per household, battery management must become wireless and autonomous. This problem is now being solved through power harvesting, which enables a circuit to power itself from energy in the environment. This white paper discusses… (Show more)

RF and microwave designs are usually sensitive to the physical dimensions of the layout. You can use ADS to vary dimensions and investigate performance. This workshop (that you can go through on your own) shows ways of parameterizing the physical dimensions of a layout so you can efficiently sweep or optimize them, even using EM simulations.… (Show more)

I just got back from DesignCon 2017, the premier conference for chip, board, and systems design engineers held annually in Santa Clara, CA. This year did not disappoint. With so many design engineers from Silicon Valley and all over the world, you can be sure that the latest technologies were being discussed for high-speed digital designs.    … (Show more)

IC design stands on the shoulders of device modeling and characterization. The semiconductor industry depends on fast and accurate device models as circuits are pushed to higher frequencies, device geometries are becoming ever smaller with ever higher chip device count. Without adequate models, IC designers cannot accurately simulate their… (Show more)
