SANTA ROSA, Calif., July 20 2020 -- Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS), a leading technology company that helps enterprises, service providers and governments accelerate innovation to connect and secure the world, announced PathWave Design 2021, an open, scalable and predictable 5G and mmWave software solution. It enables design and validation engineers to accelerate delivery of chip, board and system products by integrating device, circuit and system design with improved performance and accuracy.
The5G market is rapidly gaining broader acceptance. Network operators are transitioning from 4G and rolling out commercial 5G around the world. Equipment manufacturers and suppliers need to optimize performance, cost (yield), and time-to-market in their designs to be selected as vendor of choice for mainstream 5G deployments. However, higher frequencies coupled with the increasing design integration and complexity of 5G, require a unified, end-to-end approach to eliminate late stage design iterations and ensure first pass success.
"Current design methodologies for 4G and earlier standards use approximate figures of merit to get designs to market quickly," said Tom Lillig, general manager of PathWave Software Solutions at Keysight Technologies. "This legacy approach is insufficient for modern designs, which increase integration requirements due to 5G broadband modulation schemes. The design techniques developed with previous generations of designs simply aren't sufficient to meet the 5G standards."
Implements Best Practices in Radio Frequency (RF) and Microwave Workflows
PathWave 5G addresses high frequency and complexity with new capabilities across all design phases including simulation to validation, as well as test and manufacturing. Engineers can eliminate months from product schedules by implementing best practices in their radio frequency/microwave (RF/MW) workflows such as:
Keysight's PathWave Design 2021 software suite enables:
Keysight's PathWave Design software suite includes: PathWave Advanced Design System (ADS), PathWave RFIC Design (GoldenGate), PathWave System Design (SystemVue), PathWave EM Design (EMPro) and PathWave Device Modeling (IC-CAP), which deliver the key capabilities needed to address 5G challenges, including radio frequency/microwave (RF/MW) simulation and verification; electronic system-level (ESL) simulation; and device modeling to improve design speed, accuracy and robustness.
