TRADE NEWS: Agilent Technologies Genesys 2014 Delivers Breakthrough Modulated RF Analysis for Circuit, System Design
SANTA CLARA, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Agilent (News - Alert) Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today announced the latest release
2014, its industry-leading, affordable RF simulation and synthesis
software. Designed for circuit and system designers, the Agilent EEsof
EDA software features breakthrough modulated RF analysis as well as
enhancements to its powerful, custom-filter direct synthesis technology.
Using Genesys (News - Alert) 2014, designers can now simulate digitally modulated RF
signals like those found in today's defense and consumer wireless
applications as easily as they do traditional analog RF signals. Unlike
other simulators that provide only single-value results for EVM, BER or
ACPR, Genesys 2014 delivers breakthrough system budget analysis of these
digital modulation metrics for every component in the system block
diagram, all in a single pass. This provides RF designers the
unprecedented ability to immediately identify culprit components causing
digital performance failures.
Powering Genesys 2014's accurate digital modulation analysis is a new,
embedded numeric dataflow simulator that also enables easy verification
against the latest wireless standards for WLAN 802.11ac and LTE (News - Alert)-3GPP.
With the appropriate defaults conveniently set up and ready for use in
the software's test menus, RF designers no longer need struggle with
setting unfamiliar and complex dataflow parameters to verify their
circuits or systems against wireless standards.
"When designing the new Genesys 2014 modulated RF capability, we wanted
to make it extremely intuitive for RF designers," said How-Siang Yap (News - Alert),
Genesys product planning manager with Agilent EEsof EDA. "We
accomplished this goal by mimicking what RF designers already do on the
bench with vector sources and analyzers. Genesys 2014 is now able to
automatically take care of all the complexity of dataflow sources, sinks
and their parameters behind the scenes."
Additional Software Enhancements
Genesys 2014 revamps its most powerful direct-synthesis technology for
seamless workspace integration to allow multiple custom filters to be
interactively designed together. Doing so enables the exacting design of
diplexers, multiplexers and notched filters. Powerful equivalent network
transforms can then be used, allowing designers to realize their designs
in lumped and/or distributed printed circuit boards.
Genesys 2014 also now features the industry's largest collection of
vendor X-parameters* models for se in nonlinear circuit and system
simulation. Such functionality further establishes the software as the
most affordable, accurate and ease-to-use RF simulation and synthesis
solution in the industry.
Additional powerful upgrades to Genesys 2014 include a new Momentum
planar electromagnetic simulator and 3D layout viewer, an improved
phase noise simulation algorithm, and 100 percent MATLAB script
