Project description

The main objective of this project is the development of fully automated modeling and identification techniques to build platform-independent (SPICE, Verilog-A, VHDL-AMS compatible) physics-based parameterized compact macromodels for complex linear and nonlinear

microwave and RF systems. These parameterized compact macromodels will enable future designers to size and simulate their circuits under design in a time-efficient and accurate way.

The model extraction can start from both simulations and measurements. This includes full-wave electromagnetic (EM) simulations of complex passive microwave structures, nonlinear circuit simulations, and linear and nonlinear microwave measurements.
