Design and Simulation Count on Agilent to help you through to a complete gigabit design. Our deep expertise in this area is built into our Advanced Design System (ADS) software and its capabilities that model RF and microwave effects quickly and accurately. You can use ADS and the Agilent physical layer test system (PLTS) software to solve tough modeling problems such as long, lossy interconnects or crosstalk in densely packed interconnects. Furthermore, both vector network analyzer (VNA) and time domain reflectometry (TDR) measurements can be easily calibrated and controlled by the PLTS...

Analyze and Debug With our high-speed digital solution set, you can estimate system performance with models of devices and structures before your hardware is designed or returned from the fab shop. Use proxy devices to estimate component behavior, and vary device parameters to account for process variation, temperature drift, humidity effects, and more. To help maximize design margins, you can assess a system’s segmented performance at IC pins, interface connectors, backplanes and elsewhere. Collectively, these capabilities can help you predict and optimize yields. ADS lets you build a...

Product Descriptions Design and Simulation Signal Integrity N1930B Physical Layer Test System (PLTS) 2013 Software Developing and refining channel models enables you to meet project schedules and performance requirements. When these models don’t extend to high enough frequencies to emulate prototype performance, then PLTS can be utilized to measure prototype S-parameters and refine the model to perform at higher frequencies. As data rates exceed 5 Gb/s, linear passive interconnects become more critical to channel performance. Physical layer structures such as SMA launches, inductive wire...
