Overcoming Challenges in Integration and Parameterization of EM Simulation Within a High-Frequency Circuit Design Flow

Today’s complex wireless circuits and systems require the integration of EM simulators into the overall microwave circuit simulation environment in order to successfully design products that meet demand for smaller devices with higher performance in short time-to-market windows. There are, however, several challenges for such an integration to be successful. This application note examines some of those challenges and how they can be overcome using NI AWR Design Environment.
