Optimizing Power Supply


Any electrical engineer knows providing power to your board is a key feature in PCB design. While most boards can be functional, their true quality shines when the perfect level of power to components is achieved. Building and designing better power supplies is the best way to ensure the end-product has full life-cycle potential. But how do we ensure we can convert a (potentially variable) i... » read more

Hot Or Not? An Introduction To Electrical Thermal Co-Design


Heat transfer is not a one-way street. Traditionally, thermal analysis and management is thought of as a mechanical problem. However, modern electronic products are highly susceptible to electronic thermal issues. The electronics are often both the cause of thermal issues and the victim of overheating if temperature profiles exceed specifications. Indeed, over 50% of IC failures are related ... » read more

5G NR Design eMBB


Next-generation 5G/6G communication systems will provide massive connectivity to the internet with extreme capacity, coverage, reliability, and ultra-low latency, enabling a wide range of new services made possible through innovative technologies. Enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB) extends the current mobile experience with high data throughput on the order of more than 10Gbps, high system capaci... » read more

Chiplets And Heterogeneous Packaging Are Changing System Design And Analysis


In the domain of electronic product design, solely relying on process shrink as the primary driver of product innovation and improved system performance is no longer a viable approach. The cost and complexity associated with advanced nodes has everyone looking for alternatives to the traditional monolithic system on chip (SoC). The path most are taking leads to the world of “More than Moore... » read more

How To Speed Up Large-Scale EM Simulation Of ICs Without Compromising Accuracy


With growing on-chip radio frequency (RF) content, electromagnetic (EM) simulation of the passives is critical for a variety of reasons — from selecting the right RF design candidates to detecting parasitic coupling that directly impacts performance. Being on-chip, accurate EM analysis requires a tie into the process technology in the form of process design kits (PDKs) as well as a foundry-ce... » read more

System Simulation For RF Link Budget Analysis


This white paper examines how a more rigorous link budget analysis of an entire system can be determined through simulation, and how performing link budget analysis enables designers to address losses, gains, and power levels to meet the operational requirements of the radio communications system.

Computational Software


Electronics technology is evolving rapidly, becoming pervasive in our lives. There are more smart phones in use than there are people on earth, driver assistance is now common in automobiles, commercial airplanes have increasingly sophisticated infotainment, and wearable health monitors exist for a plethora of missions. Every device is generating and communicating massive amounts of data, inclu... » read more

Modified X-Band Push-Push Oscillator Simulation And Measurement


This eBook that explores the push-push oscillator configuration via harmonic balance (HB) computer simulation and test measurement. The unique operation of the push-push oscillator configuration is explored using HB simulation of spectral content and time-domain voltage waveforms. Dynamic load lines are investigated and utilized to explore peak signal excursion and degree of nonlinearity. Predi... » read more

Rigid-Flex PCB Bending EM Analysis Using Clarity 3D Solver


Rigid-Flex PCBs have been used in many modern electronic devices (such as mobile phones, laptops, and wearables, among others), due to their form factor, light weight, and cost-effectiveness. Electromagnetic (EM) analysis of Rigid-Flex PCBs has always been a challenging task for many commercially available 3D numerical solver technologies (FEM and FDTD), due to the complexity in the 3D designs.... » read more
