Agilent Technologies - Press Release 10-9-2007
Acceleware Announces Partnership With Agilent Technologies
to Provide Simulation Acceleration to Antenna Modeling
Combined Technology Increases Simulation
Processing Speeds by More Than 35 Times
MUNICH, GERMANY--(MARKET WIRE)--Oct 9, 2007 -- Acceleware® Corp.
(CDNX:AXE.V - News), a leading developer of high performance computing
(HPC) solutions, today announced a partnership agreement through which
Agilent® Technologies (NYSE:A - News) will resell the Acceleware acceleration
products throughout its worldwide sales organization to Agilent Antenna
Modeling Design System (AMDS(TM)) customers.
Agilent is the
leading supplier of electronic design automation (EDA(TM)) software
for high-frequency system, circuit and modeling applications. Acceleware
develops the fastest electromagnetic solver technology available on
the market. These combined technologies will produce immense benefits
for AMDS customers by increasing speeds of simulation processing by
more than 35 times, thus reducing the time required to run a typical
simulation from 10 hours to under 20 minutes.
technology significantly improves the productivity of our users in areas
such as Antenna design for wireless appliances and signal integrity
by increasing the speed and size of simulations they can perform," said
Erwin De Baetselier, product marketing manager with Agilent's EEsof
EDA division. "Simulating devices with AMDS typically reduces design
cycle time significantly, eliminating up to 75 percent of the modeling
and setup time required by other types of EM simulators."
AMDS is dedicated to antenna design applications. It imports, meshes
and simulates an entire wireless device together with its surrounding
real-world environment to analyze its compliance with standards such
as hearing aid compatibility, specific absorption rate, antenna diversity
and multiple-input, multiple-output.
Accelerator(TM) Board and ClusterInABox(TM), are based on NVIDIA's GPU
Computing architecture and when paired with Agilent's AMDS offer a high-speed
turnkey simulation solution that can model antenna performance and cell
phone regulatory compliance for cell phone manufacturers. Users of this
combined Agilent/Acceleware offering are able to shorten the length
of their design cycle while greatly increasing their level of accuracy.
This solution is delivered as a deskside supercomputer that is simple
to manage and available on-demand for engineers. Users additionally
benefit from a significantly lower total cost of ownership as compared
to traditional solutions of large, server room based computer clusters.
"AMDS customers are continually challenged with shorter product
development cycles for many complex products," said Ryan Schneider,
Acceleware's chief technology officer. "Our solution allows AMDS users
to push the boundaries of innovation by shortening the time scales required
to deliver faster and better quality products, which will ultimately
provide the best possible customer experience."

Acceleware specializes in the development
and marketing of special purpose software/hardware acceleration products
used to reduce design simulation and data processing run-times of high
performance computing (HPC) applications such as cell phone design,
seismic data processing, printed circuit board design, drug discovery,
photonic/communications devices design, oil reservoir simulation, lithography
mask design, bio-medical imaging and others.
are distributed by computer aided design (CAD) and computer aided engineering
(CAE) software companies to end-users at the world's largest organizations
in a wide range of industries. In each vertical market, Acceleware's
third-generation board-level and engineering workstation products accelerate
simulation and processing algorithms by a factor of 10 times or more,
on average, reducing runtimes from multiple hours to minutes. Acceleware
is a public company on Canada's TSX Venture Exchange under the trading

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling
2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed
formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit
design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at
the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps
while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got
