Microwave Office Software Dramatically Cuts Simulation Times of Multitest’s High-Performance IC Test Boards

Fri, 06/04/2010 - 8:00am
Multitest, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of test equipment for semiconductors integrated circuits, provides its clients with highly innovative test handling solutions, custom-tailored to fit individual needs and requirements.

Because high throughput rate and accuracy are critical, Multitest uses AWR’s Microwave Office with ACE™ (automated circuit extraction) to simulate and optimize its PCB designs simply, accurately, and efficiently.

Microwave Office enables users to readily create libraries for several different PCB stackups (various numbers of layers and thicknesses) characterized previously in 3D EM. Within each of these libraries, via models are linked to .s2p files that are simulated in a 3D simulator. Proper via modeling (thru-hole and back-drilled) is a critical component to accurate PCB simulations.

With the ACE technology enabled within AWR’s Microwave Office software, designers are able to leverage the ease, simplicity, and efficiency of ACE, and the Microwave Office user interface for that matter, to successfully simulate any board desired while maintaining appropriate via models as well.

AWR’s Microwave Office software with its ACE innovation can simplify a job that used to take many hours into one that is more streamlined - completed in significantly less time.
