Core + all Synthesis + 3D planar electromagnetic simulator (Momentum) to predict, visualize & fix EM effects of physical layout, e.g. coupling, reflection and radiation, on circuit performance. Simulate planar antenna far field radiation patterns.
The W5304B PathWave RF Synthesis Core + Synthesis + EM includes:
- Core environment, Linear Simulator, Schematic, Layout, Data Display Instrument Link, MATLAB script
- 3D planar EM Simulator
- 12 circuit synthesis, e.g. custom filter, matching, mixers, equalizers, oscillators, signal control, vendor discrete parts
Core, all circuit Synthesis and 3D planar electromagnetic simulator (Momentum) enables automatic synthesis of RF circuits with lumped and distributed elements. 3D planar EM simulation accounts for the EM effects of physical layout (e.g. solder pads, junction discontinuities, vias and transmission lines) on linear RF circuit performance. Predict planar antenna characteristics such as gain, sidelobe levels and impedance. Interactive cut planes and 3D visualization of animated surface currents enable troubleshooting and correction of undesired EM effects such as coupline, reflection and radiation before hardware fabrication to avoid costly rework and iterations.
