STMicroelectronics has selected Agilent Technologies Inc.'s RF design environment (RFDE) for its RF/mixed-signal IC design. STMicro has already begun a phased approach to upgrading their R&D operations to the Agilent and Cadence RFDE-based design flow.

Agilent RFDE is an RF EDA software platform that integrates RF simulation technologies from Agilent's Advanced Design System (ADS) into Cadence's analog and mixed signal design flow. RFDE is the first product to result from the alliance with Cadence, giving analog and RF engineers access to frequency-domain simulation technology from within the Cadence environment.

"When Cadence and Agilent formed their alliance, they listened to our request for tools interoperability and responded with a tightly coupled RFIC design flow," said Jean-Pierre Geronimi, central R&D CAD director at STMicroelectronics. "Standardizing on the RF Design Environment will increase our designer productivity and reduce our CAD infrastructure-related costs."
