SANTA CLARA, Calif., March 10, 2011 – Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today announced the latest release of its RFIC simulation, verification and analysis software – GoldenGate version 2011.

This release enhances Agilent’s leadership in advanced-node RFIC design with improved performance, fast mismatch analyses for analog/RF applications and a new easy-to-use graphical user interface. The release also extends the software’s RFIC analysis to more easily incorporte package and board effects.
“There are various ways to approach performance enhancements,” said Paul Colestock, product planning and marketing manager with Agilent’s EEsof EDA organization. “Agilent’s approach is to provide continuous improvement on the circuits that our customers care most about. GoldenGate 2011 stays true to that heritage.”
Agilent’s GoldenGate version 2011 software delivers the following updates for RF design analysis:
  • Carrier-analysis improvements that deliver significantly better scalability and performance on multicore CPUs, further extending Agilent’s RF performance leadership.
  • Dramatically improved performance of carrier and SSNA noise analyses.
  • Fast yield-contributor analyses for RF and analog/mixed-signal designers, including DC, AC and oscillator analysis.
  • Enhanced fast circuit-envelope analysis that accelerates RF functional path simulations by an order of magnitude or more, with broader support for RFIC-centric source configurations for models including memory effects.
  • An enhanced crystal oscillator convergence option that reduces the frustration of simulating crystal oscillators.
GoldenGate version 2011 boasts a number of improvements for wireless design verification. Fast mismatch analysis dramatically accelerates the block and functional path verification that RFIC designers perform every day, without loss of accuracy, including new support for Cadence corners tool.
The updated adslib for the GoldenGate library now includes delay-defined transmission lines and Philips-TU Delft standard/user-defined bondwire models. Using this, engineers can simulate more of their designs by including RF package and board effects. Additionally, by closing the loop between system and circuit designers using the new SystemVue and GoldenGate links and flows, designers can greatly accelerate system-level verification of RFICs.
Agilent’s GoldenGate version 2011 also improves both the tool’s usability and in turn, user productivity. A new tree/tabbed graphical user interface for the Cadence Analog Design Environment, for example, eases the configuration of RF analyses and environment/options selection.
About GoldenGate
GoldenGate is the most trusted simulation, verification and analysis solution available for integrated RF circuit design within the Cadence Virtuoso design flow. Its unique simulation algorithms are optimized for the demands of today’s complex RF circuit designs, enabling full characterization of complete transceivers prior to tape-out. GoldenGate is part of Agilent’s RFIC simulation, analysis and verification solution that also includes Momentum for 3-D planar electromagnetic simulation, Ptolemy wireless test benches for system-level verification, and the Advanced Design System data display for advanced data analysis. This suite links the RF system, subsystem, and component-level design and analysis as part of a unique and comprehensive RFIC design flow. GoldenGate is fully compatible with Cadence IC5 and IC6 platforms.
U.S. Pricing and Availability
Agilent’s GoldenGate version 2011 is available now, with a starting price of just under $25,000.

About RF Cafe

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...
