Also being introduced today is a breakthrough capability in Advanced Design System 2011 for multi-technology co-design, like that inherent in RF modules and system-in-package designs. With this capability, Advanced Design System 2011 becomes the industry’s first and only true multi-technology design environment. Using it, engineers can do the following:
Advanced Design System 2011 features capabilities that help uncover and resolve integration issues early in the design process, before fabrication of wireless components like power amplifiers and RF front-end modules. It also offers engineers the ability to design multiple RF and microwave integrated circuits (implemented with a variety of technologies), assemble them in a package or on a multilayer laminate, and simulate electrical and 3-D electromagnetic performance – all within a single platform. Together, these capabilities represent a significant breakthrough in electronic design automation. With Advanced Design System 2011, design verification no longer needs to stop at the boundary of a single integrated circuit’s or module’s technology.
Details regarding the key features available in Advanced Design System 2011 are available at the Agilent EEsof EDA Advanced Design System 2011 website. A photo of Advanced Design System 2011 is available at www.agilent.com/find/ADS2011_images.Videos highlighting the new Advanced Design System 2011 capabilities are available on Agilent EEsof’s YouTube site. Additionally, Microwave Journal will present an “Innovations in EDA” webcast titled, “Multi-Technology RF Design Using the New Advances in ADS 2011,” worldwide on March 1.
