Optimizing Filter Performance Using Integrated 3D EM Simulation

Blog Post created by KeysightEEsofEDA Employee on Jul 18, 2016

This video shows how circuit simulation, integrated with 3D EM simulation, is used to optimize the performance of a low-pass filter design. An example of coil inductors on a PCB illustrates how integrated 3D EM simulation is used to move from an ideal filter design to a physical design. 3D coil inductor models are created in Keysight's EMPro software and used in Keysight's ADS software, where a full 3D EM simulation analyzes all of the physical effects, including parasitics of the filter.
