New White Paper from Fujitsu Microelectronics Describes PSP Model Technology in RF CMOS Design

Fujitsu Semiconductor America Inc.

Sunnyvale, CA, April 07, 2009

Fujitsu Microelectronics America, Inc. (FMA) today published a new white paper entitled “The PSP Model in RF CMOS Design.” The white paper describes the Penn State Philips (PSP) transistor model in RFIC design and how it can be successfully integrated into a Process Design Kit with valuable support tools.

The white paper discusses how the surface potential approach underlying the PSP transistor model closely describes the device physics of transistors, providing the most accurate modeling technique for RF design. The PSP model theory and the practical details an RF designer must consider in applying it are discussed. The white paper also identifies the fundamental characteristics of an effective Process Design Kit, such as the inclusion of effective statistical and inductance tools.

“Accurately predicting circuit performance and design margins is critical in RF design,” said David Fung, director of strategic marketing, Semiconductor Manufacturing Services business group at Fujitsu Microelectronics. “This technical white paper is a good primer on PSP modeling for RF designers seeking improved performance and efficiency when working with silicon technology.”
