This paper presents a methodology, based on the regularization theory, to find, in the whole geometric parameter space, the planar spiral inductors with optimum quality factor. A new technique, based on Debye fitting approximation, has been applied to extract a passive equivalent circuit model of these inductors. This model provides an accurate wideband(More)
This paper proposes a methodology for modelling and simulation of RF systems in SystemC-WMS. Analog RF modules have been described at system level only by using their specifications. A complete Bluetooth transceiver, consisting of digital and analog blocks, has been modelled and simulated using the proposed design methodology. The developed transceiver(More)
This paper proposes a methodology, based on the regularization theory, to find the planar spiral inductors with optimum quality factor in the whole space of geometric parameters. Moreover a new technique, based on the Debye approximation, has been applied to extract an equivalent circuit model of these inductors. This model provides an accurate wideband(More)
The impact of parasitic effects of integrated inductors for RFIC is not negligible so an accurate model of their behaviour is necessary. This paper presents a numerical parameterized model of integrated inductor with hollow planar spiral geometry and poly-ground-shield. The model allows to choose the inductor geometry with better quality in relation to its(More)
This paper proposes a methodology that, starting from a set of calibration measurements picked up at the external ports, allows the de-embbeding of a multi-port transition and the determination of its representative matrix. With this methodology the coupling between internal versus external ports are supposed symmetrical. This hypothesis together with the(More)
