AMCAD is partnering with Microsanj who offers a thermal measurement solution which highlights dynamic thermal effects that take place in RF devices. For AMCAD, the knowledge of dynamic thermal heating in pulsed conditions is seen as a great improvement to extract accurate nonlinear and electrothermal compact models. The combination of our Pulsed IV generator and the Microsanj SanjView Thermoreflectance offers a unique solution for the foundries who want to investigate dynamic self heating effects on their devices. During the EUMW exhibition, a demo of the thermoreflectance system will be provided on AMCAD booth.
With emerging applications such as 5G who are using wideband RF signals, DC Supply noise is a significant problem in RF systems (PAs, LNAs, VCOs) where it can mix with RF signals, degrading signal/noise ratios and potentially causing violation of spectral masks. Because of the severe impact of supply noise on wireless system performances, it is especially important to reduce this noise when testing RF circuits for successful design of the system.
