High Frequency Electromagnetic Software

The most accurate commercial high frequency planar electromagnetic (EM) analysis tool suite for single and multi-layer planar integrated circuits and antennas. 


advICo microelectronics provides the exlusive sales distribution and technical support for the Sonnet® 3D planar EM solver products to northern and western continental Europe (Germany, France, Switzerland, Austria, Belgium, The Netherlands, Luxembourg, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Norway).  Ask us if  we can serve you if your region is not listed.

Sonnet's suites of high-frequency electromagnetic (EM) Software are aimed at today's demanding design challenges involving predominantly planar (3D planar) circuits and antennas. Planar circuits include microstrip, stripline, coplanar waveguide, PCB (single and multiple layers) and combinations with vias, vertical metal sheets (z-directed strips), and any number of layers of metal traces embedded in stratified dielectric material.

The Sonnet® Suites™ develop precise RF models (S-, Y-, Z-parameters or extracted SPICE model) for planar circuits and antennas. The software requires a physical description of your circuit (arbitrary layout and material properties for metal and dielectrics), and employs a rigorous Method-of-Moments EM analysis based on Maxwell's equations that includes all parasitic, cross-coupling, enclosure and package resonance effects.

Sonnet maintains a single, dedicated focus on providing the industry's most accurate and reliable high frequency planar EM software. Sonnet makes it easy to either develop and analyze designs within the software, or to incorporate tools into existing design processes and frameworks. Customers need never commit to a proprietary framework in order to get the best in planar EM analysis.
