Efficient Design Flow for 5G NR Front-End Components

TMYTEK designers were challenged with difficult specifications for the filter and antenna components in the company's BBox beamformer box. The design process for these components was streamlined with the use of the filter synthesis and phased-array generator wizards in the Cadence AWR Design Environment platform, saving a significant amount of time for the initial design. In addition, the integrated system and circuit simulators combined the EM results into a circuit model, the verified performance of which was validated within an RF link analysis at the system level. This unique flow saved 20-30% in design time.
