Fast, Accurate RF Simulation with Eldo RF
On-demand Web Seminar
This online presentation/demo shows how Eldo RF enables full-chip RF IC simulation for wireless applications, while being able to seamlessly integrate with multiple design environments. We cover how the Eldo RF harmonic balance algorithm offers maximum efficiency, based on a Jacobian system solved by preconditioned iterative techniques to dramatically reduce memory and CPU usage. Watch the demo to see how Eldo RF provides the speed and capacity to simulate very large circuits (10,000 is a routine task), and how 64-bit compilation has broken the 2GB barrier.
What You Will Learn
Topics covered will include:
- Analysis of VCOs and high-Q quartz oscillators
- How multi-threading can dramatically improve performance at no extra cost
- Why frequency based (Harmonic Balance) techniques offer higher accuracy
- How Eldo RF enables steady-state analysis, modulated steady-steady state, non-linear noise, and steady-state for oscillators
Curing Reliability Issues at the IC Design Stage
This presentation offers an introduction to these problems and explains how advanced EDA tools can help integrate the reliability prediction capability in the design cycle itself.
Characterizing PLL Jitter from Power Supply Fluctuation Using Mixed-Signal
Characterizing PLL Jitter is important yet challenging. Usually done through transistor-level transient analysis, slow simulation speed has been the major bottleneck preventing jitter from being characterized...
A Nonlinear S-parameters Behavioral Model for RF LNAs
A nonlinear behavioral model for radio frequency low noise amplifiers (LNA’s) is presented. The model captures effects of nonlinearity, output power saturation, noise figure and port impedance mismatch....
