Distortion Summary in New CDNLive YouTube Video and at IEEE IMS2014 Next Week!

Hi Folks,

Check out this great new video on YouTube:

CDNLive SV 2014: PMC Improves Visibility and Performance with Spectre APS

In this video from CDNLive Silicon Valley 2014, Jurgen Hissen, principal engineer, MSCAD, at PMC, discusses an aggressive RF design with distortion problems in the lab, and how a solution was developed in collaboration with Cadence® FAEs using the distortion summary feature in Cadence Spectre® Accelerated Parallel Simulator. This solution provided improved visibility into circuit operation to speed up the distortion-sensitive design cycle by 30%, and more deterministic silicon performance leading to fewer disconnects between simulation and lab. Learn more about the Spectre Accelerated Parallel Simulator at

The distortion summary feature mentioned in this video will be at shown at the IEEE International Microwave Symposium 2014 next week in Tampa Bay, Florida. Nebabie Kebebew has written a blog post describing the full line of SpectreRF technology highlights at the conference. Be sure to stop by and say "hello" if you are attending!  

Best regards,
