    magnetic near field visualization Reply

     Does Cadence provide a tool to visualize EM effects on die (full layout)?

    I am interested in plotting a 2D/3D graph that visualizes the magnetic near/far field for inductors on chip.

    If there Cadence does not provide any? Is there a 3rd party plugin for Virtuoso or software that does that?

    Thanks!

    Cadence used to have two related tools that did this - Virtuoso RF Designer, and Virtuoso Passive Component Designer (the focus of this latter tool was for inductor synthesis). These tools are no longer sold (since the end of 2008), so instead you will need to use the solution from (say) one of our Connections Partners. For example, Ansys, Applied Simulation Technology, Helic, Lorenz, Sonnet - to name a few. I may have missed some out...

    Regards,

    Andrew.

    I do have PCD and RFD. I am aware of their EOF. The university still has a valid license for them. Are you sure PCD can show the magnetic field generated out of the inductor? I read the documentation but I cannot find anything in PCD that does that. Thanks!

    Certainly VRFD can simulate the near-field, and I think PCD can too. However, neither of them had visualisation to show the magnetic field.

    I believe Momentum (from Agilent) can do this, and probably some of the others I mentioned previously.

    Best Regards,

    Andrew.
