Public Domain Open Source Software by
our research group at MIT:
[by Tarek El-Moselhy] An
open-source, full-wave, 3D, electromagnetic solver for efficient
extraction of interconnect structures above a substrate. The code is
accelerated via the efficient discrete complex image method, efficient
full-wave integration routines and an iterative precorrected fast Fourier
transform matrix vector product. The code has been tested on a variety of
large scale (up to 300,000 unknowns) structures.
- Caplet [by YuChung Hsiao]
A C++ open source capacitance extraction. Specialized instantiable basis
function templates move the computational bottleneck of this integral
equation solver from the non-embarrassingly parallelizable matrix solver
to the embarrassingly parallelizable matrix setup phase. 90% parallel
efficiencies have been demonstrated on tens of cores.
“Real-time” capacitance extraction performance (could be used
to generate 3D field solver accurate parasitic capacitance values while
dragging and stretching wires with the mouse). CAPLET can directly handle
GDS2 layout files into capacitance matrices in both GUI and command line
interfaces. The internal extraction algorithm is specialized for VLSI
interconnect structures but not exclusively, as long as the structure is
geometry and embedded in uniform dielectric.
- Squid (stable
quasiconvex identification) [by Kin Cheong Sou] An
open-source matlab tool for the generation of reduced order linear system
models from available transfer function data points. The tool is based on
a quasi-convex relaxation of a system identification problem subject to
stability and passivity constraints.
- mmbasic: [by Brad Bond] Basic Moment Matching Tools
(Matlab, Octave). A collection of Matlab functions for model reduction of linear
systems via moment matching. This is intended as a teaching tool to
illustrate how moment matching works.
- newton1d: [by Brad Bond] Simple 1-D Newton solver (Matlab, Octave). A simple
solver for Matlab. Plots each linearization as Newton
progresses, a useful tool for teaching/learning about Newton's method and when it has trouble
- SMORES: [by Brad Bond] Simulation and Model Order
Reduction of Electrical Systems. A Matlab circuit simulator that reads
spice-like netlists and performs several types of analysis.
- Stins (stable identification
of nonlinear systems) [Brad Bond], A public domain open source
matlab code for generating guaranteed stable compact models of nonlinear
analog circuit blocks from input/output data (e.g. low noise amplifiers,
mixers, or power amplifiers).
- STPWL: [by Brad Bond] Stabilized Trajectory PieceWise
Linear model reduction. This is a collection of Matlab functions for
generating stable trajectory piecewise linear reduced models for nonlinear

DAEs (or linear time-invariant descriptor systems)
[by Zohaib Mahmood] A wrapper
class which takes in S-parameter or Z-parameter file in `.snp' touchstone
format or .mat file in matlab and generates a compact dynamical model. The
code incorporates binary search to find minimum system order for given
error bound. The final model is saved in a verilogA file which can be
easily interfaced with commercial simulators such as spectre.
[by Zohaib Mahmood] open
source MATLAB code for automated design of a decoupling matrix connected
between the power amplifiers and coupled RF arrays. This decoupling matrix
mixes the input signals and transforms the impedance to ensure all forward
power is delivered to the load
