I am in need of "Useful," "Practical," and "Feasible" procedures on how to design, simulate, and layout RF Transformers using Spectre RF.
I have not seen the real-world item in the "model library" of two of the major foundaries (I cannot name them due to the NDA I have signed). Therefore, I would like someone in this forum to provide me with the above information either himself/herself, or direct me to a resource that includes "ALL" of the above pieces of information.
Unfortunately, I have not yet found a resource that meets the criteria mentioned in the Subject line above. They are mostly impractical and useless.
I look forward to hearing from someone who could address my issue.
Maybe not the answer you were looking for, but I guess you can't work around an EM simulator for the task.
In a Company I worked for, they could start a design from a Matlab script, where they implemented some basic equations. But of course that was only a first step. Then you have to sim your structure electromagnetically, and after that you can either work with [S] or - if you want to use SpectreRF - switch to a lumped element model.
To get the full picture, you may consider reading this:
It is relatively old but the basics are all there nicely covered, IMO.
Hope this helps, even a little bit.
