Before taping out an RFIC, designers need to verify to IC specifications by performing simulations of the RF chain. These simulations must include the effects of layout parasitics, digital control circuitry, complex modulated signals, and variations in process, voltage and temperature. Agilent’s RFIC design solutions increase simulation coverage of these effects, so that the RFIC can be fully characterized and verified prior to tape-out.
Agilent's RFIC simulation analysis and verification solutions include a series of products aimed at the design of large-scale RFICs used in wireless communication product design. Agilent's GoldenGate Plus EDA software provides industry-leading circuit simulation technology along with the leading 3-D planar electromagnetic (EM) simulator system-level simulation and design solutions for the performance of the circuits.
