System Simulation Software
ACS has recently released a new version of the LINC2 VSA (Visual System Architect) system simulation software. Version 1.09 adds new system component models to the VSA’s components menu. This new version of the VSA offers a new file-based multi-tone signal source for stimulation of system schematics with multiple simultaneous input tones. The associated signal file can arbitrarily specify the signal amplitudes, frequencies and signal phases for each signal in the input signal set. The Visual System Architect offers the flexibility and ease of use of schematic-based RF system simulation combined with a comprehensive array of analysis methods and graphic displays for designing at the system level.
