Synopsys/Ansys/Keysight RF Reference Design Flow on TSMC Advanced N4P Process

Synopsys / Keysight / Ansys
Smartphone, automotive and IoT applications all demand 5G/6G wireless and WiFi 7 communication, networking and online activities. This is driving the development of RF designs on leading-edge, high volume process technologies. Synopsys, Ansys and Keysight will present how they teamed up with TSMC to develop an RF design reference flow using TSMC advanced N4P process that streamlines the use of advanced CMOS technology for sub-10GHz RF circuit designs.

In this talk, we will describe how the TSMC N4P RF reference design flow cuts design turnaround time with modern, open, and high-quality RFIC design tools from Synopsys, Ansys and Keysight. We will address the design of typical RFIC components including a 2.4 GHz LC-VCO, a 5.8 GHz LNA, and a 10 GHz LC-VCO using Synopsys Custom Compiler™ design/layout and Synopsys PrimeSim™ Continuum circuit simulation products. These are tightly integrated with Synopsys StarRC™ parasitic extraction signoff product and Synopsys IC Validator™ physical verification product, and with accurate electromagnetic (EM) analysis provided by Ansys Helic tools and Keysight PathWave RFIC Design (GoldenGate) and RFPro products.
