 Agilent Technologies Announces Antenna Modeling Design System With Hearing-Aid Compatibility

EM Software Models and Verifies Antennas, Antenna Systems, Reduces Design Risks in Handheld Wireless Devices

SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE:A - News) today announced the next release of its Antenna Modeling Design System (AMDS), now containing new capabilities to verify that handheld wireless devices are equipped with hearing-aid compatibility. This is the second release of AMDS, Agilent's newest EM simulation tool dedicated to modeling and verifying antennas and antenna systems. The software helps to meet performance specifications and reduce design risks in handheld wireless devices.

AMDS is a full wave, 3-D, dedicated design, modeling and verification tool for antenna systems and placement. The new release, version 2007.4, allows users to evaluate hearing-aid compatibility (HAC) between wireless communication devices and hearing aids, according to the IEEE American National Standard Methods of Measurement of Compatibility (ANSI C63.19-2006). The standard establishes categories of compatible hearing aids and wireless devices.

"By February 2008, all wireless carriers in the U.S. must ensure that 50 percent of their phones are hearing-aid compatible," said Erwin De Baetselier, product marketing manager with Agilent's EEsof EDA division. "Today, we are leading the industry by offering HAC compatibility tests in our EM simulation environment, ensuring that designers of wireless devices will be able to meet these important and rigorous specifications."

Development of the AMDS HAC functionality was accomplished through the joint efforts of Agilent's EEsof EDA R&D team and the development team at Remcom Inc.

AMDS imports, meshes and simulates an entire wireless device, together with its surrounding real-world environment, to analyze compliance standards such as HAC, SAR (Specific Absorption Rate), and antenna diversity and MIMO (Multiple-Input, Multiple Output). Simulating the device with AMDS can reduce design cycle time significantly, eliminating up to 75 percent of the typical modeling and setup time that is required by other types of EM simulators.

The AMDS 3-D EM feature set includes: efficient importation of CAD data from product designers, reducing or eliminating EM design iterations; verification of antenna compliance with legal and operational standards such as SAR, HAC, Over-the-Air Performance and MIMO; optimization of MIMO performance by analyzing antenna placement and diversity for the entire physical wireless appliance; and optimization of device performance by simulating its real-world interaction with the human body.

Additional information about AMDS and all of Agilent's EDA software offerings is available at www.agilent.com/find/eesof-AMDS. A high-resolution image of the Agilent AMDS software is available at www.agilent.com/find/eesof_amds-hac_image.

U.S. Pricing and Availability

The Agilent AMDS is available now with prices starting at approximately $50,000.

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 Mail" when a new message arrived...
