  • 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...

  • Guidelines for Maximizing Speed vs Accuracy for Harmonic Balance - Part 2

    I am often asked for guidelines on maximizing speed vs. accuracy for SpectreRF harmonic balance simulations . Today, I'll discuss part 2 of the 3 part series consisting of: Which Engine: Spectre or APS? Oversample vs Number of Harmonics Harmonic Trimming The first post in this series focused on the...

  • Guidelines for Maximizing Speed vs Accuracy for Harmonic Balance - Part 1

    Greetings, I am often asked for guidelines on maximizing speed vs. accuracy for SpectreRF harmonic balance simulations. In a series of 3 blogs, I'll discuss some of the "knobs" that you can tweak, those being: * Which Engine: Spectre or APS? * Oversample vs Number of Harmonics * Harmonic...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • SpectreRF GUI Support for MMSIM 7.1

    MMSIM 7.1 has just been released! The following IC release GUIs support the new MMSIM7.1 features: IC5.1.41.500.5.129 (However, USR6 or later is strongly recommended) IC6.1.1 ISR65 IC6.1.3 ISR5 And later subversions. For more information, similar tips, and design topics, please visit sourcelink.cadence...
