RF PCB Toolbox
RF PCB Toolbox™ provides functions and apps for designing, analyzing, and visualizing high-speed and RF multi-layer printed circuit boards (PCBs). You can design components with parameterized or arbitrary geometry, including distributed passive structures such as traces, bends, and vias. Using the frequency-domain method of moments (MoM) and other EM techniques, you can model coupling, dispersion, and parasitic effects.
With RF PCB Toolbox, designers of RF boards, modules, MMICs, and SiPs can predict PCB performance and verify that the manufactured PCB meets specifications. For RF and antenna designers, the toolbox provides parameterized models of distributed filters, couplers, splitters, matching networks, and Gerber file generation. Toolbox support for ODB++ and databases from Cadence® Allegro®, Mentor Expedition, Altium®, and Zuken enables signal integrity engineers to analyze the high-speed portions of the PCB layout.
