Planar EM Analysis
Cadence® AWR® AXIEM® 3D planar method-of-moments (MoM) electromagnetic (EM) analysis simulator addresses passive structures, transmission lines, large planar antennas, and patch arrays. AWR AXIEM analysis delivers the accuracy, capacity, and speed designers need to characterize and optimize passive components on RF PCBs, modules, LTCCs, MMICs, RFICs, and antennas.
The AXIEM Advantage
Perform in-situ analysis/design verification to fully characterize RF/microwave devices and ensure design success
Proprietary full-wave planar, open-boundary MoM technology provides discrete- and fast-frequency sweeps
Automatic adaptive meshing with advanced-hybrid meshing technology ensures reliable results
