Abstract: ASITIC is an interactive tool that allows an RF circuit designer to design and simulate spiral inductors and transformers in the IC environment. More generally, ASITIC allows the RF circuit designer to plan and optimize the layout of metal structures, such as capacitors and inductors, in the presence of magnetic and electrical interaction and coupling through the substrate and oxide layers of the IC. Use this program to design, analyze, and optimize planar and non-planar spiral inductor/transformer structures in Si. Also use it to analyze general magnetic and substrate coupling effects.
