RF and mmWave design success rely on tight and productive collaboration between foundry design enablement teams and EDA vendors. Tower Semiconductors has a long-term, on-going partnership with Cadence Design Systems. Based on expertise and vast market experience, this well-established collaboration is designed to provide a holistic design environment for Tower’s industry leading SiGe BiCMOS and RF SOI technologies.
In this talk, we’ll present an overview of the collaboration between Tower and Cadence, discuss case study examples of RF designs leveraging the capabilities in Virtuoso RF and it’s integration with tools for EM simulation of passives, layout synthesis, safe operating area checks, and EMIR verification.
