[SatNews] Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) has announced the latest release of Genesys 2014, the company's industry-leading, affordable RF simulation and synthesis software.
Designed for circuit and system designers, the Agilent EEsof EDA software features breakthrough modulated RF analysis as well as enhancements to its powerful, custom-filter direct synthesis technology. Using Genesys 2014, designers can now simulate digitally modulated RF signals like those found in defense and consumer wireless applications as easily as they do traditional analog RF signals. Unlike other simulators that provide only single-value results for EVM, BER or ACPR, Genesys 2014 delivers breakthrough system budget analysis of these digital modulation metrics for every component in the system block diagram, all in a single pass. This provides RF designers the unprecedented ability to immediately identify culprit components causing digital performance failures.
Powering Genesys 2014’s accurate digital modulation analysis is a new, embedded numeric dataflow simulator that also enables easy verification against the latest wireless standards for WLAN 802.11ac and LTE-3GPP. With the appropriate defaults conveniently set up and ready for use in the software’s test menus, RF designers no longer need struggle with setting unfamiliar and complex dataflow parameters to verify their circuits or systems against wireless standards.
Genesys 2014 revamps its most powerful direct-synthesis technology for seamless workspace integration to allow multiple custom filters to be interactively designed together. Doing so enables the exacting design of diplexers, multiplexers and notched filters. Powerful equivalent network transforms can then be used, allowing designers to realize their designs in lumped and/or distributed printed circuit boards. Genesys 2014 also now features the industry’s largest collection of vendor X-parameters* models for use in nonlinear circuit and system simulation. Such functionality further establishes the software as the most affordable, accurate and ease-to-use RF simulation and synthesis solution in the industry. Additional powerful upgrades to Genesys 2014 include a new Momentum planar electromagnetic simulator and 3D layout viewer, an improved phase noise simulation algorithm, and 100 percent MATLAB script compatibility.
