GoldenGate RFIC Simulation Software
Before taping out an RFIC, designers need to verify to IC specifications by performing simulations of the RF chain. These simulations must include the effects of layout parasitics, digital control circuitry, complex modulated signals, and variations in process, voltage and temperature. Agilent’s RFIC design solutions increase simulation coverage of these effects, so that the RFIC can be fully characterized and verified prior to tape-out.
Agilent’s RFIC simulation analysis and verification solutions include a series of products aimed at the design of large-scale RFICs used in wireless communication product design. Agilent’s GoldenGate Plus EDA software provides industry-leading circuit simulation technology along with the leading 3-D planar electromagnetic (EM) simulator system-level simulation and design solutions for the performance of the circuits.
GoldenGate is the most trusted simulation, verification and analysis solution available for integrated RF circuit design. Its unique simulation algorithms enable full characterization of complete transceivers prior to tape-out. Frequency- and time-domain techniques are used to accurately verify the most complex RFIC/Wireless design performance. To ensure device manufacturability and reduce design spins, GoldenGate automates the simulation, control and analysis of complex verification schemes. GoldenGate is fully integrated into the Cadence Analog Design Environment.
