DETAILS: Design Technology for Analogue IP-based RF-Front-End Solutions in Highly Integrated Communication-Systems

Printer-friendly version Send by email PDF version

Customers of future terminals for applications such as mobile internet services expect reliable solutions with a high practical value at low cost. Therefore, existing RF design technology lacks in efficiency, especially, when entering new integration dimensions in new nano-scale process technologies. With support of the BMBF in its 'Mobile Internet' initiative, leading EDA-providers, process foundries, RF design houses, system providers and research institutes have formed a community of interest and cooperate closely to find an inter-domain solution for this challenging task.

The main objective of the project DETAILS is the development of an optimized RF-System design technology for future communication systems for cellular and non-cellular access. Within the wide field of design technology especially for mobile multimedia transceiver design the following areas will be established or improved:

  • Methodology and work flows
  • Behavioral modeling at all design levels (system and process level are most emerging)
  • Application flexibility of RF-building blocks
  • Design conversion rules from BiCMOS to CMOS
  • System Verification
  • Testability, Calibration
  • Interface to process technology
  • Application defined process development
