iModeler – Fast PDK Model Generation

iModeler allows PDK engineers to stay inside Cadence Virtuoso to create the layout and run EM simulation. The built-in fast 3D full-wave solver yields both accuracy and efficiency for PDK models. The rich set of built-in library for inductor and transformer also helps to quickly build the layout.

Highlights
  • Easy generate Pcell and PDK model.
  • Built-in MoM cap, MiM cap, inductor and transformer template,Parameterized result exploration with built-in template.
  • Easy export to equivalent circuit.
