  • Getting a Feel for RF
    It was a delight when I read the blog by Bill Schweber of TechOnline's RF DesignLine titled “Getting some basic RF experience”. I was surprising pleased that somebody took the time to talk about how one might get the feel for RF. That is because what Bob talks about is more or less how I gained some of the experience that lead me ...

  • 2009 RFIC Symposium in Boston - Are You Going?
    If you are an RFIC designer then I hope you are planning on attending the 2009 RFIC Symposium and the International Microwave Symposium (IMS) which will be held in Boston, Massachusetts, as the centerpieces of Microwave Week 2009, scheduled from Sunday June 7 through Friday June 12, 2009. The 2009 RFIC Symposium is one of the foremost IEEE ...

  • OpenAccess, Its Just a Database‚Ķ
    I suspect that in another year we’ll all stop talking about OpenAccess (OA) like it is something special and treat it the way it should be, that it is just another database. Having said that, I know I’m going to get plenty of email about my portrayal of OA from colleagues and others but that is the way I see it. Let’s ...

  • Moving an Ecosystem
    Recently, a colleague here at Cadence created the image of an ecosystem, whose existence was necessary to sustain the ability to take custom design into new realms of ever increasingly small and complex technologies.  He of course was referring to Virtuoso. He asserted that “…that it takes a village” to create custom ...

  • Going broadside with electromagnetic modeling of advanced processes
    It has caught my attention that designs using fabrication processes such as 65nm, 45nm, 32nm, and smaller, have changed the landscape when it comes to electromagnetic (EM) modeling of components and interconnects.  These designs have to contend with the pronounced effects of increased broadside coupling.  This is a result of the change ...

  • Custom IC design, layouts, and productivity
    There is a definite challenge in maintaining productivity when it comes to realizing a design.  Anything that helps the layout with increasing productivity does it for me.  All the marketing and management buzz words apply here; design complexity with shrinking time to market. For layout designers in the custom and analog/mixed signal ...

  • Custom IC design and design environments
    Design environments have come quite a long way from the time I began my engineering career.  It is amazing to see how far we have come from stitching together designs as netlists to run rudimentary simulations, to today’s integrated tools with validation required across a plethora of conditions. In those days, I also remember ...
