Selectively automating non-critical aspects of RF design allows engineers to focus on precision-crafting their designs. Cadence® circuit design solutions enable fast and accurate entry of design concepts, which includes managing design intent in a way that flows naturally in the schematic. Using this advanced, parasitic-aware environment, designers can visualize and understand the many interdependencies of an analog, RF, or mixed-signal design, and can create and verify selected passive components.
Engineers need a complete flow—from system-level design to post-layout verification—that integrates circuit simulation with RF system-level and mixed-signal baseband designs. Cadence technology offers flexible system-level simulation for RF and digital blocks, enabling the verification of RF blocks within a digital environment. Co-simulation capability with data-flow simulators allows system designers to explore the effects of non-ideal circuits on system architecture.
RF Block Simulation
Creating today’s leading-edge designs requires fast and reliable simulation and analysis of RF and high-speed integrated circuits. Cadence RF block simulation technology includes the only RF simulator on the market that addresses the entire spectrum of RF design. It offers a frequency-domain harmonic balance engine for faster and accurate simulation of high dynamic-range RF circuits, and it uses a patented time-domain shooting algorithm optimized for highly non-linear circuits.
To realize RF designs, engineers need comprehensive support for custom mixed-signal and analog design at device, cell, and block levels. Cadence layout solutions automate and accelerate custom block authoring. They provide advanced features for device generation and editing, block floorplanning, automatic placement, and interactive routing.Designs are getting bigger and more complex, making power and area usage critical com ponents. It’s a tall engineering order to meet, made tougher with schedules that continue to shrink. How can you achieve your quality objectives without missing project milestones?
From synthesis through implementation through signoff, Cadence’s full-flow digital design platform provides a fast path to design closure and better predictability. Where traditional tools fall short, our platform has been developed to help you meet power, performance, and area (PPA) targets and deliver your products on time.
