    The Widest Choice of Foundry Process Design Kits (PDKs) and Component Vendor Libraries Gives You the Most Accurate Designs

    Your RF and Microwave simulation accuracy is only as good as the models you use. When choosing a high-frequency electronic design automation (EDA) tool you must consider how to obtain models from foundries and component manufacturers to successfully complete your design cycle. Keysight EEsof EDA is committed to ongoing partnerships with foundries and vendors to provide the most accurate models to help speed your designs to manufacturing.

    Foundry process design kitsIC foundries offer semiconductor processes that are characterized by Process Design Kits (PDKs) containing active and passive device simulation models for IC design. Keysight EEsof EDA works closely with foundries to offer you high-frequency PDKs in Si, SiGe, GaAs, InP and GaN processes. When choosing a foundry PDK, you must be sure that the models meet foundry manufacturing requirements. All PDKs provided for Keysight simulators are validated and distributed by foundries, so you are guaranteed that the models behave optimally for first-pass design success.

    Keysight EEsof EDA provides more foundry PDKs than any other EDA software company. With more than 35 RFIC and MMIC foundry partners, Keysight EEsof EDA gives designers the most design flexibility to support a complete design flow from schematic to design rule checking (DRC).

    Keysight EEsof EDA has the largest number of high-frequency foundry partners providing PDKs for todays popular foundry processes.

    WIN Semiconductors PD50-01 ADS PDK component palette, schematic, layout, and DRC in Advanced Design System provides MMIC design success.

    Both Keysights GoldenGate and RFDE simulators are Spectre (from Cadence Design Systems) software compatible, allowing you to use the Spectre kits directly in these powerful Keysight simulators. Unlike competing simulators that need their own PDK format, causing delays, these industry-standard Spectre-compatible PDKs from RFIC foundries provide you with the fastest access to up-to-date PDKs along with the power of Keysights frequency- and time-domain simulators. The result is the best balance of price and performance to tape out to the foundry of your choice.

    Keysight EEsof EDA provides the necessary training to foundries so that you get timely updates direct from the foundry. If you have a mission-critical need for a missing PDK from a foundry, Keysight can help with PDK creation through our foundry partner collaboration. Low Temperature Co-fired Ceramic (LTCC) PDKs are also available for RF-SIP design for wireless appliance RF modules.

    Contact the foundries directly with your Keysight EEsof PDK inquiries.

    All PDKs are foundry-certified to reflect current processes for your RFIC and MMIC design and manufacturing success.

    Largest Selection of Vendor Component Libraries For Best Product Price Versus Performance

    Thin-Film Technology Corporation provides equalizer component libraries exclusively in ADS for completing high speed and high frequency signal conditioning design. Keysights signal integrity solution provides eye diagram analysis both before and after equalization.

    Keysight EEsof EDA teams up with leading component manufacturers worldwide to provide more than 100,000 part libraries. Approximately 90% of the libraries come with layout footprints for a fast track to physical hardware. The wide variety of libraries includes active circuit and system components, passive components, and high-speed connectors.

    1. Modelithics, one of our modeling partners, provides ADS/Genesys libraries from several component manufacturers.

    The latest release of ADS contains HSPICE compatibility ,allowing high speed serializer- deserializers modeled with an HSPICE netlist to be directly simulated or encrypted in ADS for distribution to designers of high-speed serial data links.

    Component manufacturers provide their ADS-compatible model libraries as down-loads from their websites. You download the latest component libraries without being dependent on the ADS software release schedule, and you have access to manufacturing components much earlier in the design cycle. Models are easy to install in ADS.

    In addition, many more component vendors offer S-parameter libraries in the s2p Touchstone format established by Keysight EEsof EDA for download and simulation within ADS and the Genesys RF and microwave circuit and system design software.

    The Keysight EEsof EDA Partners page contains links to all the component vendor model library downloads.

    Keysight also teams up with selected modeling companies to provide services to foundries and component vendors. Some of the modeling partners include Admos, Modelithics, Softmems, xmod and Amcad.

    Your favorite component vendor can easily create ADS libraries for you by using Keysights free Library Builder. Ask them!

    When you choose a simulator, look for a rich set of simulation models for building your designs. Keysight EEsof EDA has the widest support with foundry and compo-nent vendor partners worldwide. We are committed to supporting you to ensure that your investment in our EDA platform is productive, both today and in the future.
