IHP Expands its SiGe PDK Offerings for Use with Agilent Technologies’ ADS 2011 Release

IHP - Innovations for High Performance Microelectronics, Frankfurt (Oder), Germany, today announced the availability of leading-edge Advanced Design System (ADS) process design kits (PDKs) for its 0.25 µm SiGe process (SG25H3) and 0.13 µm SiGe process (SG13S).

The upgraded and further improved kits work seamlessly with ADS 2011 and ADS 2009 Update 1, as well as prior ADS releases, and enable both IHP and Agilent customers to take full advantage of the significant breakthroughs in ADS 2011.

The IHP PDKs, developed for use with ADS from Agilent Technologies, enables RF designers to design MMICs such as LNAs, mixers and power amplifiers. The IHP SiGe PDKs includes a complete set of MOSFETs, SiGe bipolar transistors, passive components such as poly resistors, MIM capacitors and inductors, diodes and contacts. The technology contains two thick aluminum layers for high-Q passive elements. Important layout components are fully scalable and are characterized to meet the IHP technology performance. The IHP process design kits support a complete ADS front-to-back design flow with design rule check (DRC) rules.

“Our customers require dedicated RF design flow support to handle the advanced challenges of today's sophisticated RF and microwave designs,” said Dr. Renè Scholz, head of IHP`s MPW & Prototyping Service. "Agilent’s ADS platform has grown in popularity for silicon-based RFIC design and offering a complete ADS design kit, including layout tools and integrated EM support, gives us and our customers the advantage of Agilent's proven expertise in RF and microwave design. Additionally, our customers gain confidence about the accuracy of their designs at high frequencies and avoid additional design cycles."

“The combination of ADS and the IHP’s SiGe design kits provides our mutual RF customers access to a powerful, integrated design solution for a fast and efficient RFIC design flow,” said Juergen Hartung, foundry program manager of Agilent’s EEsof EDA organization. “With these kits, our customers can now enjoy the industry’s most comprehensive multi-technology design platform using qualified substrate definitions files for Momentum, the industry-leading 3D planar EM simulator, our integrated full 3D FEM engine, industry proven design-for-manufacturing capabilities inside ADS, and an upgraded design rule checker. The kits have dedicated RF & microwave design support like a MMIC toolbar personality and transmission line libraries to help streamline the MMIC design process.”

Im Focus: Can we see monkeys from space? Emerging technologies to map biodiversity

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.

Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...

Im Focus: Klima-Satellit: Mit robuster Lasertechnik Methan auf der Spur

Hitzewellen in der Arktis, längere Vegetationsperioden in Europa, schwere Überschwemmungen in Westafrika – mit Hilfe des deutsch-französischen Satelliten MERLIN wollen Wissenschaftler ab 2021 die Emissionen des Treibhausgases Methan auf der Erde erforschen. Möglich macht das ein neues robustes Lasersystem des Fraunhofer-Instituts für Lasertechnologie ILT in Aachen, das eine bisher unerreichte Messgenauigkeit erzielt.

Methan entsteht unter anderem bei Fäulnisprozessen. Es ist 25-mal wirksamer als das klimaschädliche Kohlendioxid, kommt in der Erdatmosphäre aber lange nicht...

Im Focus: Climate satellite: Tracking methane with robust laser technology

Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.

Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...

Im Focus: How protons move through a fuel cell

Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.

As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...
