Software suite improves design development speed, performance, accuracy
KEYSIGHT TECHNOLOGIES PathWave System Design 2022 and PathWave Advanced Design System (ADS) 2022 software improve design development speed, as well as performance and accuracy, through an integrated workflow that accelerates delivery of radio frequency (RF) systems, chips, modules and boards. PathWave ADS Multi-Technology Assembly enables error-free assembly and simulation of RF modules containing RFICs, wafer level package, interconnects, antennas, pcb and RF connectors BOTH software platforms deliver a connected design workflow that enables circuit designers to:
- Design with modulated waveforms using instrument-grade analysis and reference signals for advanced specifications such as 5G new radio (NR) and WiFi6, providing key figures of merit directly from circuit simulation.
- Verify system performance with circuit-level accuracy by bringing models directly from PathWave ADS into PathWave System Design, connecting circuit and system design teams and removing any source of error with a single model format.
- Predict interference and coupling issues prior to prototype through integrated electromagnetic analysis to predict high frequency layout effects and providing system designers a clear understanding of board and module level coupling.
