WHITE PAPER RF Module Design and Development Featuring Cadence AWR Software RF modules offer a large amount of functionality in a small space, but they can be an engineering challenge for development teams. When combining multiple integrated circuits (ICs) into a single package, it is necessary to model the electrical behavior of many different technologies, such as interconnects (transmission lines) and embedded distributed components, as well as RF, analog, and digital components. The choice of Electronic Design Automation (EDA) software can be critical for achieving simulation results that are closely matched to final measured results.
