### Inductor

ASITIC Analysis of Si Inductors and Trasformers for ICs, ASITIC is an interactive tool that allows an RF circuit designer to design and simulate spiral inductors and transformers in the IC environment. More generally, ASITIC allows the RF circuit designer to plan and optimize the layout of metal structures, such as capacitors and inductors, in the presence of magnetic and electrical interaction and coupling through the substrate and oxide layers of the IC. Use this program to design, analyze, and optimize planar and non-planar spiral inductor/transformer structures in Si. Also use it to analyze general magnetic and substrate coupling effects.

This is a program that is freely available from the University of California, Berkley website. In the words of the author, “ASITIC is a CAD tool that aids RF/microwave engineers to analyze, model, and optimize passive metal structures residing on a lossy conductive substrate”. This includes inductors, transformers, capacitors, transmission lines, interconnects and substrate coupling analysis. ASITIC is an Unix based graphical program which runs under the X windows environment. Typing asitic on the shell prompt brings out a layout screen where the user can specify the geometry of the object under test. It supports different kinds of geometries like the square and even non-traditional shapes like the polygon. There are a series of simple commands that help the user layout the spiral and help one manipulate it. The next important step is editing the technology file, which specifies the IC process. In the technology file, specifying the size of the FFT specifies the resolution of the analysis. Different kinds of simulations can be done and the relevant parameters like inductance, quality factor and self-resonant frequency determined at a particular frequency. The program is relatively fast and simple which gives a good first cut for the different design parameters.

### Discrete Inductor : Introduction

If you are designing cmos inductor , you should know fundamentals of discete inductor also, image 1 image 2

The inductor is one of the greatest electronic component to enter the electronic field, it utilizes AC waveforms to reduce current, the more current the more induced resistance there will be in the circuit. Through this discussion you will earn how to calculate the affects on the circuit that the inductor has as well as calculating inductance in different setup situations. You will almost never see an inductor in a computer system but you will se them in power supplies for all sorts of household electronics. The inductor family

Here we have s set of five different inductors with distinct personalities. Inductor A is an inductor designed for high power environment, it has a ferrite core which gives it a greater inductance ability which makes it perfect for power supplies with a need for precise outputs. Inductor B is an air core inductor which offers little inductance in a circuit but does have a thick coil, this is a good example of something that you would find in a TV set or computer monitor. Inductor C is a device with an inductance rating specified on its outer rings. Although I will explain this inductor in much more detail later, you should also know what kind of devices you might find it in and why. Due to a thin coil and compact size, it is only suitable for such devices such as hand held radios and such devices with low power consumption. Inductor D is a device that has a variable core for precision tuning for such devices as radio frequency discriminating. As you might also have noticed, the coils are very thin few which means that the situation in where this device can be in are very limited. Inductor E on the other hand is built much like inductor D in the way that it has a variable core but the coil windings are much thicker and are able to withstand a greater amount of power. This device would be suitable for such devices like low consumption power-supplies.
