Novel Solutions for Challenging Problems

SYMMIC Software

SYMMIC is a software package for design-stage thermal analysis of high-power RF components. The easy-to-use simulator facilitates detailed analysis of heating in Field Effect Transistors (FETs) and Monolithic Microwave Integrated Circuits (MMICs). Packaging of MMICs into radar and communication systems can be further analyzed to determine the impact of subsystem design on peak junction temperatures within individual FETs. SYMMIC is a transformative tool enabling transistor, circuit and packaging designers to obtain optimal performance and reliability in next-generation RF and power systems.

Scripts are available to facilitate thermal analysis from Microwave Office (MWO) or ADS (EEsof). ADS script facilitates exporting device locations from a layout in Keysight's EEsof to SYMMIC for thermal analysis. MWO scripts easily export layouts and power to SYMMIC, and provide the following additional functionality:

  • Export thermal resistances to MWO scripted equation for schematics
  • Iterative CW electro-thermal analysis with scripted equation
  • Iterative electro-thermal with SYMMIC in the loop
  • Export RC thermal network for incorporation in transient electrical simulations

  • Please see the Electro-Thermal Datasheet for more details.
