Hi..How are you? I want to design a 2.4G LC-VCO based PLL as an interest (no tape out).So I have several questions about model files and simulator.
1) There are inductor,varator and resistance in my circuit. If I want to simulate this circuit, Must the model file include inductor,varator and resistance parameters besides PMOS NMOS parameters?
2) If I use mixed-mode files(not RF process model and there are only PMOS and NMOS parameters in my model) to simulate my circuit, what will the simulator do? The simulator will act the inductors,varators as ideal component?
3) How to get free RF model files as practice?

4) What is the difference between HSPICE and SpectreRF(or @DS)? In my company,HSPICE the main simulator.but I know SpectreRF(or @DS) is the dominant simulator in RFIC. At a word, HSPICE is not suitable for what frequency range?

Thank you very much.

Kirt Blattenberger,

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...
