Advanced EM Concepts and Features in Microwave Office

This two-day course focuses on concepts and features in Microwave Office circuit design software. The first day will feature important concepts designers need to understand for successful simulations. Various tradeoffs in settings for physical principles in the AXIEM planar and Analyst™ 3D FEM simulators will be explained. The second day will present useful features in Microwave Office software that help designers control layout and simulation. Topics discussed will include parameters for making EM models, PCells, and multiple PDKs. Advanced extraction control will also be discussed.

Areas Covered

  • Concepts - Ports, Boundaries, and Meshing
  • Features – Parameterized Layout, Preprocessing Rules, and Multi-Technology
