Analog/RF
DESIGN

Faststream Technologies has deep expertise in Analog, Mixed-Signal (AMS Design) Wireless,  and RF Design services. It covers amplifiers, signal condition, passive and active filter, PLLs, audio processing, low-noise design, micropower design, A/D, D/A conversion, and many more related areas. 

 

We have sound experience from DC to low GHz microwave frequencies. Besides this, we are prominent in designing wireless devices that operate in the 2.4 GHz Industrial, Scientific, and Medical ISM band.

 Tools used for Analog and Mixed-Signal Design

 

  • Cadence Virtuoso is used for Schematic Capture and Mask Design.
  • Cadence Specter, Specter-RF, ADE, and Specter Multi-Mode Sim with Analog/Mixed-Signal (AMS Design) are used for Circuit simulation.
  • Keysight ADS Momentum is 3-D planar EM simulation software used for RF circuit and antenna analysis
  • Mentor Calibre is our primary tool for RC parasitic extraction and DRC and LVS checking
  • MATLAB/SIMULINK is used for System Analysis modeling
  • Faststream’s server farm provides more than enough power than is needed to simulate and check the largest analog cores and chip designs.
