Thomas Costas

I am a member of the Cadence Virtuoso Product Marketing Team, involved with Virtuoso at the platform and product levels. I bring a background in RFIC design, RF/microwave circuit and system design, EM modeling, device characterization, & RF design techniques. I joined Cadence in 2004 from a fabless semiconductor startup that I co-founded which developed highly integrated single-chip RF transceivers targeting wireless networking in all its forms.

OpenAccess, Its Just a Database…
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   Read More »

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   Read More »

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   Read More »

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   Read More »
