Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today announced shipment
of Advanced Design
System 2012, its flagship RF and microwave EDA software
ADS 2012 features new capabilities that improve productivity
and efficiency for all applications the system supports and
breakthrough technologies applicable to GaAs, GaN and silicon
RF power-amplifier multichip module design. The capabilities
and breakthroughs now available to new and existing ADS users
User interface enhancements designed to improve design
efficiency and productivity, such as dockable windows for
quickly accessing frequently used dialog boxes.
Updated Load Pull and Amplifier DesignGuides, which offer
mismatch simulation and make it easy to see amplifier
performance at a specific output power level or a specific
amount of gain, respectively.
Dramatically improved integration with EMPro, which
enables 3-D electromagnetic component designs to be saved
as database cells for use directly in ADS.
A new ADS electro-thermal simulator that incorporates
dynamic temperature effects to improve accuracy in
"thermally aware" circuit-simulation results.
Multichip module electromagnetic simulation setup and
Finite Element Method simulation of different technologies
to analyze electromagnetic interactions between circuits
and interconnects, wire bond and flip-chip solder bumps in
typical multichip RF power-amplifier modules.
Model support for Agilent's artificial neural
network-based NeuroFET model
(extracted by Agilent's IC-CAP device modeling
software) to enable more accurate FET modeling and
Currently supported Agilent customers interested in the ADS
2012 breakthroughs and features should contact their local
applications engineer or field sales person for more
