Advanced Modeling Tool – MeQLab

Introduction

MeQLab is an advanced modeling platform for baseband, analog and RF model extraction, quality assurance and associated circuit verification. The integrated internal SPICE engine and powerful optimizer enable fast and accurate parameter extraction. The entire modeling flow, from parameter extractions to verifications can be accomplished on this one platform. Besides modules we offer in MeQLabTM which facilitates modeling work, it also provides user-friendly coding environment to develop user-customized modeling flow.

Key Benefits

Open and highly integrated architecture enables one-stop solution for both parameter extraction and model QA. The real-time QA capability provides an efficient way monitoring model quality and thus improves the productivity.
Internal SPICE engine features fast simulation speed and good compatibility with commercial simulators. The unique Monte-Carlo engine improves simulation speed by 100X compared to general algorithm.
Rich options of optimization algorithms (differential evolution, pattern search, Levenberg-Marquardt and etc) help modeling engineers converge to the optimum results quickly.
Advanced RF modeling platform integrates complete characterization, de-embedding, RF parameter extraction and QA for up to 110G Hz CMOS RF devices. And it’s fully customizable to be applied to customer’s RF devices and applications.
Provides seamless conversion from baseband model to RF mode. Provides applications for final model generation in different formats compatible with commercial simulators.

Applications
