 Agilent Technologies Updates Advanced Design System EDA Software to Enhance Serial Link Design

SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A - News) today announced availability of the Update 3 release of its Advanced Design System (ADS) high-frequency electronic design automation (EDA) software. The addition of serializer/deserializer (SERDES)/Verilog analog mixed-signal (AMS) co-simulation, and other signal integrity capabilities, gives designers a more complete signal integrity design flow for serial links, and confidence that analog and digital components will work together.

"This is the third consecutive ADS release where we have added new capabilities for signal integrity designers," said Sanjeev Gupta, product marketing manager with Agilent's EEsof EDA division. "The ability to co-simulate and use SERDES models in ADS along with digital components lets designers simulate serial links from end to end, and helps ensure that the analog and digital parts of their circuit will work together and behave as expected."

ADS is an industry-leading EDA platform for microwave and RF circuit and system design. It offers complete design integration to designers of products such as cellular and portable phones, pagers, wireless networks, radar, satellite communications systems and high-speed digital wireline designs.

The Agilent ADS Update 3 enables designers to perform true mixed-signal simulations of high-speed digital boards by co-simulating with Verilog-AMS based SERDES models, providing complete analysis of serial links. It also allows designers to use ADS to examine designs with NCSim and ModelSim as well as high-frequency SPICE simulators. Signal-integrity designers can use ADS transient/convolution, EM and Ptolemy simulators in a co-simulation with digital simulators to gain more insight into complex designs.

The new capabilities in Agilent's ADS Update 3 include:

Verilog-AMS co-simulation for simulating end-to-end system behavior with analog and digital components; W-Element Model for including RLGC files in simulations; integrated Stateye functionality for fast BER simulations; Signal Studio file reader for fully coded, standards-compliant wireless signals from Agilent's Signal Studio; enhanced WiMAX(TM) and 3GPP LTE libraries for the latest 3GPP and Mobile WiMAX(TM) standards; and latest device model support: BSIM 4.6.1, HICUM 1.12, and SimKit 2.5. ADS Update 3 includes additional new technologies and enhancements; more information is available at www.agilent.com/find/eesof-ads-update3.

This ADS software release is available for immediate download. Supported ADS users are encouraged to visit the Software Download area of the Agilent Knowledge Center at www.agilent.com/find/eesof-knowledgecenter.

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...
