Best Practices For Efficient And Effective Planar EM Simulation

10 best practices for using a simulator to overcome issues when running EM simulations.


Designers of today’s complex, multi-featured communications products require accurate and fast electromagnetic (EM) simulation to deliver cost-effective, high-performance products to market in ever-shrinking windows of opportunity. The Cadence AWR AXIEM 3D planar method-of-moments (MoM) EM analysis simulator within the AWR software portfolio delivers the accuracy, capacity, and speed designers need to characterize and optimize passive components on RF PCBs, modules, low-temperature co-fired ceramics (LTCCs), monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs), RFICs, and antennas. This eBook presents 10 best practice tips for using the AWR AXIEM simulator that will help designers effectively and efficiently use the software to overcome the most commonly encountered issues when running EM simulations. The tips address four main design areas: ports, EM environment, meshing, and simulation.
