Chip Capacitor - 3D EM Cell (Closed Form): CHCAP_EM



This element should only be used in 3D EM documents. The intent of this model is to create a 3D parameterized cell for a chip capacitor for 3D EM analysis. See “Using 3D EM Elements ” for details on using 3D pCells with Cadence® AWR® Analyst™ 3D FEM EM analysis software.

This element does not have a layout that can be used in schematic layout. When you first use this layout cell, a layer named "CHCAP_EM" is added to your drawing layer and model layer list (if they are not already there). Using the model layer mapping, you can assign these layers to draw on any drawing layer.

3D EM Layout

This element has a layout cell specifically for Analyst 3D EM layouts. See “Using 3D EM Elements ” for details on using 3D pCells with Analyst software. The parameters of the model fully define a parallel plate capacitor.
