 Agilent Technologies Announces GoldenGate Plus for Large-Scale RFIC Simulation, Analysis and Verification

High-Capacity Circuit Simulator, Combined with Additional Data Display, Electromagnetic Analysis and System-Level Design Tools Help Speed High-Frequency RFICs to Market

SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE:A) today announced the availability of GoldenGate Plus for RFIC simulation, analysis and verification. Agilent’s GoldenGate Plus product line speeds the design of large-scale RFICs for wireless communication products. It combines the high-capacity GoldenGate simulator, acquired from Xpedion in 2006, with a customizable data display, electromagnetic (EM) simulation and system-level design and simulation.

“RFIC designers face increasing chip complexity, and they need ways to simulate as much of the chip as possible to mitigate risks that can lead to design re-spins and missed opportunities,” said Niranjan Kanaglekar, RFIC R&D manager with Agilent’s EEsof EDA division. “With our acquisition of the GoldenGate simulator last year, we’re able to combine and integrate all of our simulation technologies for the most extensive RFIC simulation and verification solution available today.”

The GoldenGate simulator is fully integrated into the Cadence Analog Design Environment. Its unique algorithms are optimized for the challenging demands of large and complex RFIC design, and enable full characterization of complete transceivers prior to tape-out. It ensures device manufacturability and reduces design spins, using frequency-domain-based capabilities to perform analyses such as Monte Carlo simulations, which are faster by orders of magnitude than traditional, transient-based techniques.

GoldenGate Plus is a family of products with multiple configurations that can be tailored to fit the designers’ needs. In addition to the GoldenGate simulator, the product family includes:

RF Design Environment (RFDE), an RFIC design platform that is based on Agilent’s Advanced Design System and accessed from within the Cadence design environment; Advanced Design System RF and microwave-circuit and system-design software, providing design solutions for board-level and system-in-package-level RF design; Momentum, a 3-D planar EM simulator used for passive circuit analysis; Ptolemy, a system-level simulation and design solution based on a hybrid of synchronous and timed synchronous dataflow technologies; and Wireless Test Benches with several pre-configured system level source and measurement setups for compliance with today’s complex wireless communication standards.

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...
