– “RF Mode” provides high-speed quasistatic solvers
Finite Element Method (FEM)
Finite Difference Time Domain (FDTD) Simulator
The Keysight FEM Simulator is based
on the industry-proven Finite Element
Method. Unlike 3D planar simulators, this
technology can handle arbitrarily shaped
3D structures such as bondwires, conical
shaped vias and solder balls/bumps where
z-dimensional changes appear in the
structure. FEM solvers can also
simulate dielectric bricks or inite-size
The Keysight FDTD Simulator is based
on Finite Difference Time Domain
technology. Like FEM, FDTD can
handle arbitrarily shaped 3D structures. Whereas FEM produces a large
matrix during the solution process,
FDTD uses an iterative process to
update ield values at each time step.
FDTD is an inherently parallel method
and therefore lends itself very well to
the processing capabilities of the most
recent advances in CPU (general-purpose processors) and GPU (graphics
processors) hardware.
Keysight FEM is integrated with ADS so
layout designs do not need to be exported
to third-party EM simulators. Keysight FEM
is also available in EMPro for simulating 3D
models imported from other CAD tools or
created natively.
– Frequency-domain solver based on
Finite Element Method technology
– Most accurate EM simulation technology for 3D structures such as packaging, bondwires, connectors and other

simulation and analysis to achieve insight into design performance and manufacturability
prior to tape out, avoiding costly mistakes and design re-spins.
Figure 11. While GoldenGate offers traditional analog simulators, it also goes beyond innovative RF simulation
technology to provide a variety of solutions for designing, analyzing and verifying integrated RF circuits.
Comprehensive RFIC Design and Veriication Solution
GoldenGate is part of a comprehensive RF-MS IC design low which originates at design capture and lows seamlessly to prototype
test. Designs initially are created in Cadence Virtuoso Schematic Capture. Circuits are then simulated in GoldenGate directly from
the schematic, enabling a smooth capture to simulation. Advanced simulation analyses including Carrier, Envelope, Fast Envelope,
Noise and Transient can be used in combination with speciic tasks such as Load Pull, optimization, parameter sweeping, Monte Carlo/
Corners, including Fast Mismatch, provide “real world” view of performance and yield. Simulation results can be viewed using either

show how temperature affects
your circuit’s performance, helping you to neutralize adverse
temperature effects before committing to fabrication.
By providing the accurate
operational temperature proile
within the IC, HeatWave reveals
hotspots and excessive temperature variations in precision
Enhances your ability to detect
reliability and wear out/lifetime
issues, using accurate and realistic temperature data.

stacked-die SiP. HeatWave computes the full-chip temperature proile at the spatial
resolution of your devices and interconnects, and annotates this data into your circuit
simulator, making your simulation results temperature-accurate.
Because the geometric features of power sources and heat conduction paths inside a
chip are at the submicron scale, the thermal modeling and numerical solution techniques
have to be commensurate with such feature sizes. The simulation results are 3-dimensional temperature proiles with the necessary resolution and accuracy.
HeatWave works with several IC design tools, including Cadence Virtuoso. A version of
the HeatWave solver is also available in Advanced Design System (ADS) for RFIC and
MMIC applications.

and temperature troughs, caused by heat conduction of the solder bumps.
Thermally-Accurate Circuit Simulation
HeatWave provides your circuit simulator with instance-speciic temperatures that are
computed using the full knowledge of the layout geometry, layer material properties,
power dissipation, and package.
Reliability and Lifetime Analysis
Temperature is a strong driver of most IC failure mechanisms, such as electro-migration,
NBTI/PBTI, TDDB, etc. HeatWave computes the actual temperature of each device and
wire segment, to enable accurate reliability and failure rate estimates.
