Synopsys Webinar

Wireless communication is at the heart of the technological revolution of the past few decades and RF circuits are what enable wireless systems to communicate with each other. The design and characterization of RF circuits is a complex process that requires the designer to account for a variety of challenges. In addition to the challenges posed by modern semiconductor processes and the growth of modern standards such as 5G, the designer must also account for electromagnetic effects that become significant at RF and mmWave frequencies. The Synopsys Custom Design Family provides a holistic way of solving the RF Designer’s challenges from seamless integration of Ansys products for passive component synthesis, and accurate, high-capacity EM modeling of critical components, simulation and post-processing of important RF measurements, to layout creation and accounting for physical effects.


Listed below are the industry leaders scheduled to speak.
