Agilent Technologies - Press Release 9-19-2007

 Agilent Technologies' Latest Genesys Software Provides First-Pass RF/Microwave Accuracy, Shorter Physical Design Cycles

SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE:A - News) today announced that the company is shipping Genesys 2007.08. This latest release of Genesys includes new statistical and electromagnetic analyses that provide affordable, first-pass accuracy for RF and microwave designs, resulting in shorter physical design cycles and faster time to market. The new Genesys features the RF industry's only EDA environment that has realistic statistical component variations, histograms and yield optimization at a price that is comparable with consumer-oriented computational software. These new statistical analysis features, together with Agilent's Momentum GX (the high-performance planar-3D EM simulator announced in August) enables highly accurate physical design. The powerful combination of technologies is available at a price that individual designers and small-budget design houses can afford.

"The inspiration for our enhanced statistical capability originated with one of our larger customers using Six Sigma design techniques," said Daren McClearnon, product marketing manager with Agilent's EEsof EDA division. "The customer wanted to implement Six Sigma methodology at the RF system architecture level, to transition away from spreadsheet-based tools. By implementing the required statistical capability as part of the Genesys platform, we fulfilled not only the customer's desire for more elegant system architecture tools, but we also opened these high-yield techniques to the broader RF community."

The Genesys statistical features include:

new statistical distribution functions, applicable to any variable or component parameter; histogram plots, for use with circuit, RF system, and EM simulation types; and 17 new statistics-oriented equations and measurements. When combined with statistical Monte Carlo and Yield Optimization, along with physical models, RF-aware layout, and circuit/system/EM simulators, Genesys 2007.08 provides the key capabilities for high-performance physical design.

Genesys 2007.08 also provides:

Momentum GX, a high-performance planar-3D EM simulator, which delivers the accuracy required for first-pass microwave design success; voltage-based system models and measurements, so that Spectrasys, the system design tool for use with Genesys, can be applied to modern, RFIC-based system architectures; and new licensing options for keyless ("ADS-style") licensing and accelerated evaluations. About Genesys

Eagleware-Elanix, the originator of Genesys, was acquired by Agilent Technologies in 2005.

Agilent EEsof EDA continues to build on and enhance the Genesys platform, an integrated EDA software package for self-supporting RF and microwave designers and workgroups. From initial system architecture through final documentation, Genesys provides state-of-the-art performance in a single easy-to-use design environment that is fast, powerful and accurate.

U.S. Pricing and Availability

Current Genesys software suites include four bundles that are priced less than $10,000. Configurations for high-yield linear design start at $3,995. The Genesys/Momentum GX bundle is priced at approximately $15,000.

Through October 2007, Agilent is offering special discounts on electromagnetic analysis tools. For more information about Genesys suites and the current Genesys/Momentum GX discount, visit www.agilent.com/find/eesof-genesys.

A high-resolution image of the Momentum GX software is available at www.agilent.com/find/genesys.2007.08_image.

Supported customers can download Genesys 2007.08 immediately from the Agilent Knowledge Center ( www.agilent.com/find/eesof-knowledgecenter). All others may request a free software evaluation ( www.agilent.com/find/eesof-genesys-evaluation).

1996 - 2024


Kirt Blattenberger,


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...
