Agilent Technologies Accelerates Early Wireless Design Verification
with New Release of SystemVue
June 5, 2012 Press Release
-- Design Flow Connects EDA with Test and Measurement for Debugging Across Domains
CLARA, Calif., June 5, 2012 – Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today announced a new release of
SystemVue, Agilent’s premier
platform for designing communications systems.
Agilent will demonstrate SystemVue 2012.06 along with a
range of solutions for everything from circuit-level modeling through system verification for general RF,
microwave, 4G communications, and aerospace/defense applications at DAC2012
(Booth 313), June 3-7, in San Francisco. SystemVue 2012.06 will also be demonstrated at IMS 2012/IEEE MTT-S (Booth
1015), June 19-21, in Montréal, Canada. A range of premier partner solutions will be available on Agilent Avenue
and throughout the event area.
2012.06 provides deeper design-flow integration of baseband signal-processing tools with intellectual property
reference libraries, RF electronic design automation tools and test equipment. The software enables system
architects to predict and cross-verify baseband and RF physical-layer performance at earlier phases of the design
process, enabling faster deployment of 4G, WLAN and aerospace/defense systems.
SystemVue 2012.06 improves
the design flow for new communications systems by creating an effective platform for cross-domain debugging. By
bringing target-specific FPGA tools up to the physical layer of the system, HDL designers can validate against
accurate RF models and live test and measurement results, for cross-domain modeling.
SystemVue 2012.06 enhancements for baseband modelers include:
“Agilent is committed to accelerating existing development flows for intellectual property,” said Frank Ditore,
SystemVue product manager at Agilent. “We are bridging the design/test gap for communications ASIC/SoC, DSP and
FPGA design through integration of enterprise modeling interfaces and languages with accurate RF modeling and real
measurement results. This allows our customers to verify difficult baseband PHYs as early as possible.”
- A native math language (.m) debugger that enables line-by-line execution with breakpoints and assertions
across multiple model objects, while preserving the underlying MATLAB .m format.
- C++ modeling with Microsoft Visual C++ 2010, the world’s leading software IDE. (W1718
C++ Code Generator supports interactive cross-platform debugging, code generation and system-level
- VHDL/Verilog verification that adds Aldec Riviera PRO HDL cosimulation.
- Direct FPGA flow support for Altera Stratix and Cyclone parts, through integration of Altera Quartus with
W1717 Hardware Design
Kit. (SystemVue now supports vendor-neutral HDL code-generation that integrates directly with both Xilinx
and Altera tools.)
SystemVue 2012.06 also features updates to several libraries and design
personalities as maintenance upgrades. The impacted solutions include:
