Agilent Technologies - Press Release 7-9-2007
Agilent Technologies Announces Extended Simulation Coverage,
SANTA CLARA, Calif., July 9, 2007 -- Agilent Technologies
Inc. (NYSE: A) today announced a major update to the Agilent 3GPP LTE
Wireless Library for use with the company's Advanced Design System (ADS)
EDA software. New uplink receiver models and improved uplink/downlink
source models help wireless-systems designers and verification engineers
speed development of the evolving 3GPP Long Term Evolution (LTE) designs
for next-generation mobile communications products.
Capability for its 3GPP LTE Wireless Library
3GPP LTE Wireless Library is based on Release 8 of the 3GPP standard
for the next generation of mobile communication products. It works within
the ADS environment using the Agilent Ptolemy simulator to streamline
the design and verification process. The library provides preconfigured
simulation setups with signal sources for downlink and uplink, along
with transmitter analyses such as spectrum, complementary cumulative
distribution function (CCDF) and waveform measurements.
new uplink receiver models facilitate error vector magnitude (EVM) and
bit error rate (BER) measurements for UL simulations. Additionally,
the library's uplink and downlink source models have been improved to
conform to TS36.211 v1.1.1 (2007-05) of the 3GPP standard.
is firmly committed to evolving the 3GPP LTE Wireless Library to keep
pace with the developing 3GPP LTE standard," said Frank Ditore, system
architecture product manager with Agilent's EEsof EDA division. "This
is demonstrated by our extending simulation coverage further into the
physical layer chain and adding UL receiver capability. As a result,
designers can now verify the algorithmic performance of their IP against
known reference models and validate BER performance of early 3GPP LTE
Agilent has also recently updated the Mobile WiMAX(tm)
Wireless Library. Updates include MIMO support and inclusion of Convolution
Turbo Coding (CTC)/decoding and system measurements with the CTC codec.
Agilent's Mobile WiMAX Wireless Library conforms to the IEEE 802.16e-2005
About Agilent ADS and Ptolemy
Agilent ADS is
a powerful electronic design automation software system for wireless,
RF and microwave IC design. It provides designers with a complete set
of front-to-back simulation and layout tools, as well as instrument
links in a single, integrated design flow. Agilent Ptolemy is a system-level
simulation and design environment within ADS. Based on a hybrid of data
flow and timed synchronous technologies, it facilitates digital signal
processing co-design with analog/RF circuits.
