IMODEL 2.0 – An Online Tool for Integrated Inductor Selection

From a set of fabricated integrated inductors in CMOS technology, and by means of 2.5D accurate electromagnetic simulations and a physical-based inductor model, we have obtained a parametric model. This model lets us to find the geometric parameters of the inductor that provide the highest quality factor for a particular inductance value and frequency. Based on it, a powerful scalable inductor selection tool (IMODEL) has been developed. This tool can be used to:
– Find the optimal geometric parameters for an inductor that provide the highest quality factor for a particular inductance and frequency.
– Draw de L and Q versus frequency.
– Generate PI-model.
– Generate of the CIF file, for easy CADENCE import.
– To adapt de tool to any IC fabrication technology, it is also possible to change the technological parameters.
