Momentum 3D Planar EM Simulator
Agilent's Momentum is the leading 3D planar electromagnetic (EM) simulator used for passive circuit modeling and analysis. It accepts arbitrary design geometries (including multi-layer structures) and uses frequency-domain Method of Moments (MoM) technology to accurately simulate complex EM effects including coupling and parasitics. Accurate EM simulation enables RF/MMIC designers, RF/High-Speed Board Designers, RF Module/SiP Designers and Antenna Designers to improve design performance and increase confidence that the manufactured product will meet spec. Momentum is also integrated with ADS and Genesys, along with third party tools from Cadence, Mentor and Zuken.
Key Benefits of Momentum
- Combines full-wave and quasi-static EM solvers for RF passives, high-frequency interconnects and parasitic modeling
- Efficient meshing, adaptive frequency sampling and threaded NlogN solver which reduces simulation time
- Able to simulate complex EM effects including skin effect, substrate effect, thick metals and multiple dielectrics
