Count on Keysight to help you through to a complete gigabit design. PathWave Advanced Design System (ADS) software and its capabilities model RF and microwave effects quickly and accurately. Use PathWave ADS and the Physical Layer Test System (PLTS) software to solve modeling problems such as long, lossy interconnects or crosstalk in densely packed interconnects. PLTS software calibrates and controls both vector network analyzer (VNA) and time domain reflectometry (TDR) measurements. PathWave ADS provides an integrated workflow that unites system, circuit, and physical-level design and...

To help pinpoint problems, PathWave ADS provides integrated simulation and data displays. PathWave ADS includes eye-diagram, mask, and bit error rate (BER) contour displays for visualizing channel- or circuitsimulation results. The PathWave ADS Channel Simulator (for serial buses) and DDR Bus Simulator (for parallel buses) produce ultralow BER contours in seconds by applying state-of-the-art statistical analysis techniques that include a unique treatment of transmitter jitter modeling that correlates closely with measured data. Both simulators support not only built-in generic models but...

With our high-speed digital solution set, you can estimate system performance with models of devices and structures before hardware design or fab shop results. Use proxy devices to estimate component behavior and vary device parameters to account for process variation, temperature drift, humidity effects, and more. To 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. PathWave ADS lets you build a foundation for a deeper understanding...

Real-world measurements reveal performance parameters that can help you identify critical components within a specific budget. They can also help you validate or refine assumptions in your simulations and enable correlation of model results with actual tests. To create consistent data sets, you can correlate data in the time, frequency, and simulation domains. For greater visibility, you can use simulation to interpolate and extrapolate waveforms in locations measurements can’t reach. For greater confidence in actual VNA and TDR measurements, the PLTS software includes advanced calibration...

Today’s demanding environment means you have much less time to understand the intricacies of the technologies you are testing. Compliance applications save you time and money with built-in measurement automation. Keysight’s Infiniium compliance applications are fully functional with design tools such as PathWave ADS. Imagine running your waveforms at design through the entire suite of compliance tests earlier than was previously possible. As the design moves to silicon and then to validation, you can run the same suite of tests live on your device. Keysight compliance applications are...

Signal Integrity Today’s emerging high-speed digital applications require a special kind of design engineer who understands the subtle signal integrity issues at hand. High-frequency microwave effects cause the most problems within telecommunications and computer systems, channels, and components. High-speed interconnects such as connectors, printed circuit boards (PCBs), cables, integrated circuit (IC) packages, and backplanes are critical elements of differential channels that must be designed using today’s most powerful analysis and characterization tools. Both measurements and...
