Xpeedic of Cupertino, Calif., unveiled RF Electronic Design Automation (EDA) Solution 2023 edition at the IEEE MTT International Microwave Symposium (IMS), showcasing its ability to accelerate the design of highly integrated RF modules and systems using its differentiating chip-package-system EDA tools and mass-production proven integrated passive devices (IPD) IP.

The RF EDA Solution includes XDS, Xpeedic’s RF system-level design and simulation platform, IRIS, its on-chip passive modeling and simulation tool, and iModeler, a passive model generation tool.

XDS provides schematic design and simulation, post-layout electromagnetic simulation with both method-of-moments (MoM)-based and finite-element-method (FEM)-based solver technologies, electromagnetic (EM) circuit co-simulation and tuning/optimization. In the new 2023 edition, XDS features a new filter synthesis algorithm and supports parametric padstack and permittivity, SNP-based LC matching in Smith Chart, bondwire simulation and hierarchy design for schematic and layout.

IRIS has been widely adopted for RFIC designs and certified for advanced process nodes. In the new 2023 edition, IRIS upgrades its accelerated 3D EM solver engine with improved run time and peak memory usage.

iModeler now includes built-in MoM cap, MiM cap, inductor and transformer templates, enables parameterized result exploration using built-in templates.
