Transistor-level, closed-loop PLL verification has been impractical due to traditional SPICE and RF simulator performance and capacity limitations. By using Analog FastSPICE, designers do not have to trade accuracy for performance.</div> <p><a href="http://electronicdesign.com/eda/full-circuit-pll-verification" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://electronicdesign.com/eda/full-circuit-pll-verification#comments Analog Communications White Paper EDA Fri, 17 Jun 2016 19:38:00 +0000 877131 at http://electronicdesign.com Full-Spectrum RF Analysis http://electronicdesign.com/eda/full-spectrum-rf-analysis <div class="field-deck"> Sponsored by: Mentor Graphics </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Traditional RF simulation tools use limited-spectrum approaches that limit the number of harmonics or sidebands in device noise computations. Such approaches trade off performance for accuracy and produce optimistic results that can significantly underestimate device noise impact. Learn about the limitations of traditional RF simulation tools and how you can use full-spectrum periodic noise analysis to improve your designs.</div> <p><a href="http://electronicdesign.com/eda/full-spectrum-rf-analysis" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://electronicdesign.com/eda/full-spectrum-rf-analysis#comments Analog Communications White Paper EDA Fri, 17 Jun 2016 19:38:00 +0000 877141 at http://electronicdesign.com Electronic Design’s Products of the Week (6/12-6/18) http://electronicdesign.com/test-measurement/electronic-design-s-products-week-612-618-3 <div class="node-body gallery-body">Whether you're looking for regulators or sensor interfaces, Electronic Design has you covered.
