Agilent Technologies recently launched the latest version of their Advanced Design System (ADS). ADS 2012 features new user interface enhancements designed to improve design efficiency and productivity. For example, dockable windows enable designers to quickly access frequently used dialog boxes, such as component information and layer visibility in layout. ADS electronic design automation software is ideal for RF, microwave and high-speed digital applications.
Agilent Technologies introduced the latest verion of their Advanced Design System and Electromagnetic Professional software. ADS 2011.10 RF design software and EMPro 2011.11 3-D modeling and simulation platform include enhancements to speed and improve RF design and verification. AADS 2011.10 will ship later this month. EMPro 2011.11 will be available for download in late October. Pricing for the ADS and EMPro environments start at $8,000 and $7,000, respectively.
Agilent’s Advanced Design System (ADS) 2009 Update 1 features a new statistical mode for the signal integrity Channel Simulator. The new statistical mode is ideal for design and verification of high-speed, chip-to-chip data links found in most consumer and enterprise digital products produced today. By accelerating simulation, the new Channel Simulator mode allows manufacturers of such products to more quickly explore and arrive at an optimal design and eliminates the need for costly and time-consuming prototype iterations, dramatically improving time-to-market.
