The Momentum Simulator Engine is a 3-D planar electromagnetic (EM) simulator used for passive circuit analysis. It accepts arbitrary design geometries (including multi-layer structures) and accurately simulates complex EM effects including coupling and parasitics. Accurate EM simulation enables RF/MMIC designers to improve passive circuit performance and increases confidence that the manufactured product will function as simulated.

Momentum RF is a second solver technology within the Momentum EM engine that reduces simulation time without sacrificing accuracy on large structures under a half wavelength.

Because Momentum is an integrated component in the Advanced Design System (ADS) design flow, simulation setup times are reduced, and design productivity is increased.

Product Highlights

  • Full wave EM solver accounts for full dispersion and radiation.
  • Quasi-static EM solver for faster modeling of larger circuits from DC to a half wavelength.
  • Fully-integrated with ADS Layout environment.
  • "Edge mesh" for improved behavioral characterization of current crowding in high frequency signals.

The Momentum Simulator Engine is integrated into the Momentum G2 Element.
