Keysight Technologies Inc., a technology company that helps enterprises, service providers and governments accelerate innovation to connect and secure the world, announced PathWave Design 2020, which includes the latest releases of Keysight’s electronic design automation software to accelerate design workflows for radio frequency (RF) and microwave, 5G, and automotive design engineers.
The PathWave Design 2020 software suite includes new releases of flagship products: PathWave Advanced Design System (ADS) 2020, PathWave RFIC Design (GoldenGate) 2020, PathWave System Design (SystemVue) 2020, and PathWave RF Synthesis (Genesys) 2020.
Technologies are pushing new limits in electronic design with longer battery life, smaller components, and higher levels of integration. As a result, design requirements are growing in complexity, as the amount of data continues to increase. Analyzing and correlating that data requires multiple, non-integrated design tools that create unnecessary complexities.
In fact, in a recent survey conducted by Keysight, data correlation and software integration were identified as the most pressing challenges faced by design and test engineers. According to the survey, over 90% of respondents want to accelerate time-to-market with an integrated product development solution that enables data sharing.
The PathWave Design 2020 software suite accelerates product development by reducing the time engineers spend in the design and simulation phase. Its libraries and customized simulators reduce setup time and automation improvements reduce manual work. The software seamlessly integrates circuit design, electromagnetic (EM) simulation, layout capabilities, and system level modeling, reducing the time needed for importing and exporting designs and fixing errors associated with changing tools. Improvements in data analytics allow for rapid analysis and timely design decisions.
“Creating efficiency in the product development workflow is an industry challenge, particularly in design and simulation,” said Todd Cutler, vice president and general manager of design and test software at Keysight. “Keysight’s PathWave Design 2020 provides engineers with new tools and software enhancements that shorten the design cycle and eliminate project delays by adding new efficiencies to their RF and microwave, 5G, and automotive workflows.”
