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

3D PCB Design And Analysis: ECAD/MCAD And Where They Converge


The design of a board and its ‘home’ are heavily interdependent. They require careful consideration to ensure everything will be in working order when your product is ultimately brought to market. Many designs have been derailed by conflicts between ECAD and MCAD. Something as simple as an improperly placed / communicated mounting hole can send your project into a tailspin of re-designs. ... » read more

How ML Enables Cadence Digital Tools To Deliver Better PPA


Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) are emerging as powerful new ways to do old things more efficiently, which is the benchmark that any new and potentially disruptive technology must meet. In chip design, results are measured in many different ways, but common metrics are power (consumed), performance (provided), and area (required), collectively referred to as PPA. These me... » read more

Intelligent System Design


Electronics technology is proliferating to new, creative applications and appearing in our everyday lives. To compete, system companies are increasingly designing their own semiconductor chips, and semiconductor companies are delivering software stacks, to enable substantial differentiation of their products. This trend started in mobile devices and is now moving into cloud computing, automotiv... » read more
