ADS 2008 speeds communications product design

Agilent Technologies Inc. has announced the Advanced Design System (ADS) release 2008. ADS is a high-frequency, high-speed EDA software platform, and this latest release contains productivity enhancements for faster communications product design.

"Working closely with our top customers, we've enhanced this ADS release with user interface and technology improvements that speed the design process," said Jim McGillivary, general manager of Agilent's EEsof EDA division. "In 2008, I am challenging my development team to double customer productivity for a comprehensive set of typical design tasks, which we'll publish and track on our Website."

ADS 2008's GUI enhancements come from the same interface development platform used by the most popular Internet software tools and search engines, and contain advanced search and context-dependent features. The speed improvements gained from this new interface help make software-tools integration seamless for common and emerging design applications.

Because high-speed digital designers are now facing the same physical design challenges that Agilent's EDA design tools have addressed for RF and microwave design, ADS 2008 features full support for high-speed, gigabit link (signal integrity) design, including advanced bit error rate measurement and analysis.

This is first in a series of four ADS releases expected in 2008. By the end of the year, Agilent plans to double productivity for common design and simulation tasks compared with previous versions of ADS.
