"EMX has been qualified to work with TSMC's iRCX interconnect modeling format. EMX uses the width-and spacing-dependent properties provided in the iRCX technology file and automatically modifies the drawn layout to mimic the fabrication process. The approach has been validated by comparing to measurements and showing that this significantly improves simulation accuracy for inductors and inter-digitated MOM capacitors. We have several mutual customers that use EMX+iRCX and have achieved silicon success.”
Tom Quan, Deputy Director of Design Service Marketing at TSMC. Details...


"Experiments within our lab have repeatedly demonstrated the accuracy of Integrand's tools EMX and Continuum across different design spaces The integration of the OIF and OCF into our Foundry Design Kits, along with the silicon verified scalable component models, provides a unique industry solution by allowing our customers to directly synthesize optimal passive components like inductors or capacitors within seconds. The efficiency with which our customers can now design and implement their circuits should dramatically reduce time-to-market for their products."

IBM uses EMX to simulate passives structures such as inductors, transformers, and through-silicon vias, significantly expediting the design and optimization of passives. In support of foundry customers, IBM provides consultation and guidance for layout optimization for RF signal integrity. EMX is generally used as part of this analysis and support flow. In addition, as a component of IBM process design kits, EMX process files and setup information are released to customers. This enables IBM and Integrand customers to run simulations with minimal effort, and allows them to focus on thorough analysis of technology capabilities, design trade-offs and performance improvements.
Dr. Mete Erturk, Manager, 200mm enablement, at IBM


"Global Foundries utilises Integrand's EMX and Continuum to characterize and simulate inductors and capacitors.  These tools enable us to perform virtual fabrication and automatically construct accurate scalable models with good model-to-hardware correlation.  We have done extensive verification of the models on 130nm and 65nm RFCMOS technology nodes and have found them to be correlating well with RF measurements on silicon. The accuracy of the models is vital to our customers as it enhances their design accuracy and product specifications while reducing risk and time-to-market."
