RF design,Virtuoso Spectre

  • SpectreRF at 2013 IEEE/MTT-S International Microwave Symposium in Seattle, Washington

    If you are attending the International Microwave Symposium ( IMS 2013 ) in Seattle (June 2-7, 2013) stop by the Cadence Design Systems booth, #427. We will be showing new MMSIM12.1.1 features including “Smart” HB GUI, Robust and easy to use nport (for s-parameter input), and the Transmission...

  • Simulating Crystal Oscillators is Much Easier in MMSIM12.1 - Part 2

    Greetings, Simulating crystal oscillators got a lot easier in MMSIM12.1... We have made enhancements to both Harmonic Balance and transient analyses. In Part 1 , I discussed Improvements to the Harmonic Balance use model. With the new streamlined Choosing Analyses form, you now can focus on getting your...

  • Modeling Oscillators with Arbitrary Phase Noise Profiles

    When you need to include noisy oscillators in SpectreRF transceiver simulations, you have at least 3 options: 1) Semi-autonomous simulation is the most accurate approach, recommended whenever the transistor-level model of the oscillator is available. 2) rfLib/osc model is less accurate but it’s...

  • New Time-Saving Feature in IC6.1.4 ISR2: Plot S-Parameter Data Directly From ViVA!

    If you haven't heard about it....there is a new feature in IC6.1.4 ISR2 which makes troubleshooting circuits containing nports ( s-parameters ) much easier and faster! Starting i n IC6.1.4 ISR2, you can now plot s-parameters directly in ViVA (without having to create a test bench and run a Spectre...

  • Using The Composite Triple Beat Source to Speed up QPSS Analysis

    Say you have a design with 4 input frequencies: 3164M (vco), 1449M (tone0), 1456M (tone1), 1442M (tone2). Currently when you do a qpss analysis, you are inserting a total of 4 separate ports in your schematic and running a simulation. There is a divide by 2 in your circuit, so one of the frequencies...

  • NPORT S-Parameter Model Enhancements

    In MMSIM 7.2, two new parameters have been added to the Spectre nport primitive: datatrunc and causality . In MMSIM 7.1, passivity checking was added. The nport now has causality correction, passivity checking and enforcement, and the ability to remove small couplings terms from the input s-parameter...

  • Setting VIVA Waveform Color Defaults When Using ADE

    I found myself getting a little bit frustrated with some of the default colors that would come up in the VIVA waveform tool while I was plotting from the Analog Design Environment (ADE). After working with Kabir, the Product Engineer for VIVA, I discovered that the colors for the waveform defaults are...

  • SpectreRF Turbo: Parasitic Reduction

    I wanted to share some experiences I had with SpectreRF-Turbo and Parasitic reduction on a recent large benchmark. The things I learned may be helpful to anyone who wants to get the most out of turbo and parasitic reduction. Available in MMSIM7.0.1 and later for RF, turbo accelerates simulation in three...
