3-D Extraction Design Flow
Mon, 08/30/2004 - 7:45am
Optimal Corporation and Applied Wave Research, Inc. (AWR®) announces a three-dimensional (3-D) full-wave electromagnetic (EM) extraction design flow. This AWR-Optimal methodology addresses signaling issues in wireless communications integrated circuit (IC) designs operating from one GHz to over 50 GHz. Combining Optimal's O-Wave product with AWR's Microwave Office® and Analog Office design suites through the AWR EM Socket interface, this new design flow enables microwave and radio-frequency (RF) designers to perform 3-D full-wave EM simulation and parasitic extraction in order to verify the performance of chips before committing the designs to fabrication.
