Ansys RaptorX
Getting Started

Course Overview

This hands-on course is designed to teach you how to use the RaptorX electromagnetic modeling engine to generate and utilize electromagnetic (EM) models within a traditional custom IC design flow.

The course also introduces you to the fundamentals of the RaptorX solver and how to use the RaptorX user interface (UI) to accurately extract a full-EM model for any combination of passive device, arbitrary routing, layouts with planes (solid or perforated), MiM/MoM capacitors, and more. 


  • Basic understanding of custom IC design flows and electromagnetics
  • Some general familiarity with EM solvers
  • No prior knowledge or experience of RaptorX is required

Target Audience

Chip IP/SoC/CAD Engineers & Designers 

Teaching Method

Self-paced slide presentation and computer practical sessions to validate acquired knowledge. Emphasis is placed on tool background & methodology as well as workshops.

Learning Outcome

Following completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Understand the importance of EM modelling in custom IC design flows.
  • Outline some of the fundamental concepts of RaptorX.
  • Describe the value of using RaptorX in an IC design flow.
  • Understand how RaptorX supports foundry tech files.
  • Describe the general use-model and flow of RaptorX.
  • Navigate the RaptorX UI to generate EM models.
  • Model a real example of an EM structure with RaptorX.
