Cadence Design Systems
Cadence Design Systems' converter links provide Ansys users with the ability to port complex shapes including leadframes to a variety of Ansys tools including HFSS, Q3D, SiWave etc. The Simlink HFSS/Q3D converters are an add-on module that exports an intelligent design using the design process from one of our Designer Suites.Once the layout has been created from scratch or re-intelligized from DXF/DWG files, the design layout will include embedded attributes such as Material and Net information. The exported design and attribute information is saved as a .VBS script to be read into the Ansys HFSS/Q3D environment. Key Export Options include:
Using the internal 'Captured' netlist, the software can be used to quickly create ports that will be used in the export to HFSS/Q3D.
