The RF design tool you didn't know you deserved it

.: features

Mystic is a RF design tool able to calculate a bunch of RF performance parameters including gain, noise figure, IP3 and IM3 products.
Mystic can be used to simulate both transmitters and receivers as well as link-budgets, signal conditioning circuits and LO generation ones.

Output is divided in 2 sections: results at stage level and at system level.

Chain stage results:

System level results:


.: how to

Working with data file in Mystic is just like working with a spreadsheet but the design is guided and supervised by Mystic itself which means: no mess with row deletion or insertion as always happens when editing a spreadsheet file.

Components/stages are described row by row by the declaration of their electrical performance, the following parameters are to be defined in order to characterize your component:

Component name: put here the name of the component/subsystem

Component type: double click to have access to a menu from which you can choose the component type among the following:

Gain: put here the gain value of the related component keeping attention to use the value at the required frequency

Noise Figure: put here the NF value of the related component keeping attention to use the value at the required frequency

IIP3: put here the Input IP3 value of the related component keeping attention to use the value at the required frequency

P1dB: put here the Output P1dB value of the related component

Psat: put here the Psat value of the related component

In the installation path, and opened by default by Mystic, there is the example file “data.txt”.
It is a good example to start from and provides you with a generic transmitter design.
