OEA International Announces RF-PASS, 3D Passive Component Design and Analysis Software Suite for RF and Analog Designers
Morgan Hill, CA - June 5, 2002 -
today announced RF-PASS, a software suite targeted at RF and analog design
engineers. RF-PASS allows
designers to quickly analyze interconnects and passive components on RF
and analog ICs. RF-PASS can
be used to analyze complex multiple layer interdigitated capacitors,
inductors, transformers, resistors, pads, arbitrary interconnect and any
combination of these components.
A bundled graphical
user interface allows users to import layout data, define ports, select
frequencies and extract highly accurate frequency dependent distributed
spice netlists that include: resistance, capacitance, inductance and
mutual inductance. These
accurate extracted spice representations of the layout are processed by
the bundled spice-like solver to generate N-Port scattering, impedance and
admittance files (S, Y and Z parameters).
A bundled optimization engine can automatically generate an
equivalent lumped spice model that fits the scattering parameters of the
original extracted netlist. The
entire process from importing the layout to generating a lumped equivalent
model typically takes only a few minutes.
Users can also provide their own custom template for fitting to
equivalent lumped models.
RF-PASS includes high
frequency effects such as skin effect in conductors and substrate losses
through capacitive and inductive coupling. Multiple substrate layers can be defined to handle epitaxial
wafers. RF-PASS allows
multiple contacts to the substrate both on the top and bottom surface to
properly model current flow in the substrate.
Bundled visualization tools allow users to plot and compare output
RF-PASS utilizes the
Jaguar 3D field solver. Jaguar
represents the state-of-the-art in field solvers from a company that has
led the field in performance and accuracy of 3D extraction since 1988.
Software Suite starts at $105,000 and is available on most UNIX platforms.
OEA International, Inc., is the industry leader in 3D extraction of interconnects. OEA’s tools are currently used in the most demanding extraction and design environments. Some of the world’s most advanced design facilities use OEA tools for detailed analysis and design of high-speed clocks, buses, I/O rings, and power grids.
