MagnaChip Semiconductor announces a Process Design Kit (PDK) supporting Agilent's RF Design Environment (RFDE) electronic design automation (EDA) software. MagnaChip's PDK contains the full frequency range for its 0.18-micron mixed-signal/RF CMOS processes, from DC through baseband and into the RF range. This frequency range allows designers to simulate the entire system-on-chip design, ensuring correct operation at all frequencies. At the 0.18-micron node, these frequencies typically range from the audio and video frequencies in the baseband to 5 GHz in the RF band. In the future, designers are expected to attain frequencies of higher than 10 GHz in the 0.13-micron node.
