A process design kit (PDK) is a set of files used within the semiconductor industry to model transistors for a certain technology for a certain foundry, different kinds of libraries to be used with design software tools like NI AWR (for RFIC/MMIC/LTCC).

Typical PDK contains:

  • standard cells library
  • design rules (DRC rules)
  • simulation model of transistors (typically SPICE)
  • layout information (most commonly in GDSII format)
