The Gold Standard for Accurate Parasitic Extraction and Signal Integrity Solutions



OEA International and AWR Partner to Offer the Most Advanced Inductor Synthesis Solution


Deployment of Inductor Synthesis Technology in AWR Products

Adds New Capabilities and Speeds Time to Market

Morgan Hill, California - May 19, 2004. OEA International, Inc. (OEA), the industry leader in 3D interconnect extraction, and Applied Wave Research Inc. (AWR), a leading provider of high-frequency electronic design automation (EDA) tools, today announced a technology licensing agreement that enables AWR to integrate OEA's SPIRAL[TM] 3D inductor synthesis software into its Analog Office 2004 high-frequency EDA design environment. Through this Agreement, AWR will market the integrated OEA SPIRAL through its worldwide distribution channels.

"Designing advanced inductors has traditionally presented a significant challenge for designers. The integration of OEA's unique inductor generator and modeling technology into AWR's unified RF design flow enables analog and RFIC designers to accurately and quickly synthesize, analyze, and optimize a wide range of inductors, including baluns, differential inductors, and transformers," said James Spoto, president and CEO of AWR. "This will eliminate the time-consuming and error-prone sequential design steps and reworks that currently exist in today's analog and RFIC design flows. "This tightly integrated solution delivers an unprecedented level of accuracy and performance in RFIC design that significantly increases designer productivity and speeds time to market."

"Foundry libraries offer only a limited number of spiral inductors which will not exactly match the design needs, with SPIRAL they can quickly synthesize an exact match to their need and at an optimized quality factor," said Ersed Akcasu, president and CEO of OEA. "Integration with AWR's industry-leading analog and RF design environment will give analog and RFIC customers working on wireless IC designs access to the most automated and accurate inductor technology available in the industry.
