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 World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at
the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps
while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got
Mail" when a new message arrived...

questions about model files and simulator - RF Cafe Forums
RF Cafe Forums closed its virtual doors in 2012 mainly due to other social media
platforms dominating public commenting venues. RF Cafe Forums began sometime around
August of 2003 and was quite well-attended for many years. By 2010, Facebook and
Twitter were overwhelmingly dominating online personal interaction, and RF Cafe
Forums activity dropped off precipitously. If the folks at
phpBB would release a version with integrated
sign-in from the major social media platforms, I would resurrect the RF Cafe Forums,
but until then it is probably not worth the effort. Regardless, there are still
lots of great posts in the archive that ware worth looking at.
Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

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.
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
