Multiphysics Simulations For RFICs And SoCs For 5G Applications


System-on-chips (SoCs) and radio frequency integrated circuits (RFICs) for 5G smartphones and networks need to manage huge amounts of antenna data and offer significantly high processing capabilities in thermally and power-constrained environments. ANSYS multiphysics simulations simultaneously solve power, thermal, variability, timing, electromagnetics and reliability challenges across the spec... » read more

Matching Between Simulations and Measurements As a Key Driver for Reliable Overlay Target Design


By S. Lozenko, B. Schulz, L. Fuerst, C. Hartig, and M. Ruhm of GlobalFoundries and T. Shapoval, G. Ben-Dov, Z. Lindenfeld,  R. Haupt, and R. Wang of KLA-Tencor Abstract Numerical simulation of overlay metrology targets has become a de-facto standard in advanced technology nodes. While appropriate simulation software is widely available in the industry alongside with metrics that allow sel... » read more
