Project Title: THE DEVELOPMENT OF NEW METODOLOGIES FOR THE ANALYSIS AND OPTIMAL DESIGN OF MULTILAYER SPIRAL INDUCTORS USED IN RADIOFREQUENCY APPLICATIONS
Project Acronym: MAPOB
The project aims is to extend the research activities in order to develop new methodologies for analysis and optimal design of multilayer spiral inductors used in radiofrequency applications in general, respectively in biomedical applications in particular. In this context, will be approach two research directions: first having the objective to develop, implement and validate a software package for analysis and optimal design of multilayer spiral inductors in high frequency, the APOBSIF Software Package; and the second building of a stand of design, optimization, construction, testing and validation of integrated circuits, the POCT Stand. At this stand will be practically build the spiral inductors analyzed and optimized using the implemented software package, both made on monolayer and multilayer. The spiral inductors analyzed and optimized using the APOBSIF software package will be also experimentally tested in this stand by specific experimental measurements, thus validating also experimental the implemented software package. Having regard to the extensive applicability aria of the radio frequency integrated circuits containing these spiral inductors is obvious that the approached themes is actual and very important, the research deliverables will have a major impact in the scientific, technical, social and economic environments, opening new research directions and further application.
Objective 1: The analysis, modeling and functional simulation of the multilayer spiral inductors for identifying, highlighting and analyzing the effects and phenomena that occur with the transition of their implementation from one layer to the realization on several layers in order to establish the advantages and disadvantages of the use of the multilayer spiral inductors compared with those on one layer.
Objective 2: The development of new techniques to reduce parasitic effects that occur with the transition from monolayer spiral inductors to the multilayer spiral inductors on which will based on the development and implementation of an optimal design algorithm aimed to find the optimal geometric configuration of the conductors displacement that forms the multilayer spiral inductor in order to minimize these parasitic effects.
Objective 3: The development of analytical formulas of high accuracy to calculate the inductance and the quality factor of the multilayer spiral inductors necessary to design, development, implementation, verification and validation of algorithms for analysis and multi-objective optimal design of high precision for complex structures.
Objective 4: The design, development, implementation, testing and validation of an integrated software package dedicated to high frequency analysis and optimal design of spiral inductors using a powerful compiler, Microsoft Visual C #, bringing together the analysis and optimal design algorithms.
Objective 5: The practical construction of monolayer and multilayer spiral inductors, the verification and testing for the use in RF applications in general, respectively in biomedical applications in particular.
