reducing project risk
Keysight Technologies Enhances PathWave Software Suite to Eliminate
Computational Limitations with Cloud Processing
Santa Rosa, California, October 13, 2020 - Keysight Technologies, Inc., a leading
technology company that helps enterprises, service providers and governments accelerate
innovation to connect and secure the world, announced it has expanded the company's
PathWave Software Suite with new and enhanced capabilities. The new PathWave solutions
enable engineers to remove computational limitations across the workflow, with cloud
processing clusters, to improve designs and device reliability, while reducing project
Design and test engineers are struggling with complexity limitations that require
weeks, if not months, of crunching data which can significantly slow the development
process and market introduction. Keysight's PathWave, an open, scalable, and predictive
software platform, offers fast and efficient data processing, sharing and analysis
at every stage in the product development workflow. Combining design software, instrument
control and application-specific test software, it enables engineers to address
increasing design, test, and measurement complexity and develop optimal electronic
"Keysight continues to invest in software solutions through new capabilities
in our PathWave platform," said Jay Alexander, chief technology officer at Keysight
Technologies. "We are confident these new capabilities will enable our customers
to bring computational power into their own design and test workflows - accelerating
time to results, time to insights, and ultimately time to market."
Further strengthening the capabilities of PathWave, Keysight is launching 5 new
and enhanced software solutions that leverage the power of cloud processing to address
computational limitations throughout the design process, including:
PathWave Advanced Design System (ADS) Software 2021
Now equipped with design cloud simulation services, PathWave ADS 2021 software
reduces simulation time, increases simulation test coverage and provides access
to scalable hardware resources in the cloud. This new software solution eliminates
barriers to developing high performance hardware products by enabling design engineers
for mobile and computer chipsets to:
- Perform compute intense electromagnetic simulations with on-premise clusters
or scalable cloud hardware.
- Tackle large electromagnetic simulations that were previously unsolvable due
to resource limitations.
PathWave Compliance Test Software
System test engineers characterizing compliance standards for mobile and computer
chipsets need to perform rapid compliance tests without the added expense of purchasing
hardware. The new architecture of PathWave Compliance Test software offers measurement
disaggregation and integrates seamlessly into a test automation workflow along with
test automation and data analytics software, enabling system test engineers to:
- Speed transmitter compliance tests by separating physical measurement from data
processing in the cloud.
- Run signal acquisition and measurement in parallel rather than in series reducing
overall test time.
PathWave Test Automation Software
PathWave Test Automation software enables engineers to execute with speed, scale
and ease with open and modular software. However, test engineers required to use
multiple instruments have an added layer of difficulty resulting from the complex
programming needed to connect these instruments. The new enhanced version of this
software enables test engineers to:
- Easily optimize multiple instruments setups with resource arbiter and timing
- Seamlessly integrate with existing automated test system workflow to minimize
setup time while allowing for scalability.
PathWave Measurement Analytics Software
PathWave Test and Measurement Analytics software provides a simple and powerful
user interface for data visualization and analytics. It captures and stores test
data with real-time access, can import data from various sources in multiple formats,
and integrates data analytics into test processes with the open Application Program
Enhancements to PathWave Test and Measurement Analytics software now enable design
validation test (DVT) and production engineers to visualize and analyze measurement
data in the cloud without the need to create spreadsheets. As a result, these engineers
- Greater insight into data with a scalable, high-performance data repository
to speed engineering decisions.
- Fast and accurate test analysis and troubleshooting to accelerate both DVT and
PathWave Manufacturing Analytics Software
PathWave Manufacturing Analytics software is Keysight's Industry 4.0 big data
advanced analytics platform that helps customers to improve product quality and
manufacturing operations. Keysight has partnered with Kx to launch the new Workcell
edition for today's smart factories. Built on kdb+, the Kx Streaming Analytics platform
enables customers to accelerate Industry 4.0 adoption by analyzing massive test
data from production systems in real-time, providing automation and analytics for
actionable insights in microseconds, while also reducing hardware costs.
Key customer benefits of PathWave Manufacturing Analytics software include:
- Acquisition – enables customers to connect, acquire real-time and transform
test data from test systems seamlessly.
- Automation – customers can automate complex workflows to increase productivity.
- Analytics – customers can leverage tested machine learning models that provide
