How to Model RF Passive Components: Capacitors and Resistors

To download the project files referred to in this video visit:

With increasing operating frequencies, the modeling of passive components becomes increasingly important, and there exist no ready-to-use models for inductors, resistors, capacitors etc.

This video explains and demonstrates a method to develop accurate Spice models from verified S-parameter measurements. By using an easy to follow, step by step procedure, this video walks you through the entire modeling flow for an on-wafer capacitor, using the Keysight Measurement and Modeling Software IC-CAP.

The IC-CAP project can be downloaded, together with a detailed How-to-Use description, and an in-depth tutorial about passive components modeling, applying the demonstrated method.
