Keysight Technologies’ 3D planar electromagnetic simulator certified for GLOBALFOUNDRIES 22FDX process technology

Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS), a technology company that helps enterprises, service providers, and governments accelerate innovation to connect and secure the world, today announced that the company’s 3D planar electromagnetic (EM) simulator, Momentum, has been certified for GLOBALFOUNDRIES (GF) 22FDX®, 22nm Fully-Depleted Silicon-On-Insulator (FD-SOI) technology.

Keysight’s Momentum is a 3D planar EM simulator used for passive circuit modeling and analysis. It accepts arbitrary design geometries (including multi-layer structures) and uses frequency-domain Method of Moments (MoM) technology to accurately simulate complex EM effects including coupling and parasitics.

As a result of the certification, designers can now perform accurate EM simulation with GF’s cutting-edge 22FDX technology, facilitating analysis of electromagnetic effect and behavior in today’s ever shrinking and complex designs. Momentum stack-up files are integrated with the latest 22FDX PDK available from GF.

“The certification of GF 22FDX for Keysight’s EM simulator is testimony to the continuous collaboration between GF and Keysight under Keysight’s Foundry Program,” said Punmark Ngangom, RFIC Foundry Program Manager for Keysight Technologies. “Our mutual customers will now be able to leverage Keysight’s GF certified Momentum stack-up files, which are available with GF’s standard 22FDX PDK package.”

Keysight’s Momentum has also been certified for RF/mmWave-optimized metal options with different inductors, attaining highly precise correlation with silicon measurements and circuit models up to 100 GHz per GF’s certification standards.
