Enhancements to Date, Dramatically Improving Design Productivity and
SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- February 20, 2014
Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE:A) today announced a powerful new version of
the Agilent EEsof EDA Advanced Design System software, ADS 2014. Designed to
dramatically improve design productivity and efficiency with new technologies
and capabilities, ADS 2014 is the software’s most significant ADS release to
ADS 2014 Enhancements
ADS is the industry’s leading electronic design automation software for RF,
microwave and signal-integrity applications. ADS 2014 provides users with new
technologies, new capabilities and continued enhancements for silicon RFIC,
MMIC, RF printed circuit board, and multi-technology RF module design.
*Automatic electromagnetic (EM) simulation setup and design partitioning,
which automates the removal of SMD and IC active devices, and placement of
ports, then reconnection of the design 10X+ faster and 20X+ fewer mouse
*Physical layout-versus-schematic (LVS) with device recognition and an
innovative module-level LVS that uncovers multi-technology wiring and
*Wireless verification test benches that provide circuit design
verification solutions for the newest and most challenging multi-band,
wide-bandwidth standards (LTE, LTE-A and 802.11ac) with a dramatically
simplified user interface.
*Improved layout interconnect design and editing capabilities, including
new power and ground planes with smoothing and thermal relief, new
intelligent vias and interconnect routes.
*Controlled Impedance Line Designer for quickly and accurately optimizing
stack-up and line geometry for multi-gigabit-per-second chip-to-chip
*Silicon RFIC schematic interoperability with Virtuoso for bi-directional
schematic interoperability between ADS and Cadence Virtuoso.
*ADS Board Link, the next-generation printed circuit board integration
solution for bi-directional transfer of layouts, schematics and libraries
between ADS and enterprise PCB tools.
*Simulation support for Agilent’s DynaFET model, an advanced neural network
model for III-V FETs (GaAs and GaN), to accurately model the effects of
trapping, de-trapping, and self-heating, in a single, global model, valid
for all (active) applications, without the need for tuning.
