Real-time Multiprocessing Application Solution
The IXZtools 5.0 software solution for real-time multiprocessing applications provides extensive development and run-time support for the IXZ family SHARC®-based virtual machine environment boards, enabling efficient development and integration within tight time-to-market constraints. The company's integrated digital signal processing (DSP) software tool set has been integrated with Analog Devices' VisualDSP development interface. The software solution offers a powerful multisession graphical user interface development environment and includes development tools for the SHARC highly portable suite of host-level support products.
Mixer Spur Analyzer
This mixer spur analyzer is a circular chart that enables the user to check for the existence of the highest level spur products in the block downconverter mode. The chart helps users to choose the best LO and IF frequencies for wideband downconverters requiring low spur levels and speeds the choice of operating parameters that are later more closely analyzed for higher order products by a numerical program.
Transient Analysis Simulator
The MMICAD WAVEFORM time domain, transient analysis simulator allows for the prediction of waveforms in fast, nonlinear circuits where accurate S-parameter data can be imported and used in the simulation. Beneficial applications of the software include complex, externally defined voltage and current source driving waveforms; signals large enough to cause strongly nonlinear operation of the active devices; circuits which have inherently, and strongly, nonlinear electrical response, including assessing the stability of power MMICs; and transient phenomenon of interest, for example, the startup of oscillations or phase shift as a function of time in pulsed microwave circuits. Price: starting from $7500.

CDMA Mobile Test Software
The TASKIT®/CDMA (version 3.0) automatic CDMA mobile test software comprises the most extensive suite of tests for evaluating the performance of CDMA handsets in accordance with the industry's standards specified in IS-98A, J-STD-018, EIA/TIA-98B and ARIB T53 (version 1.1). The software also offers seven new tests critical to handset performance evaluation: demodulation of nonslotted paging channel with additive white Gaussian noise; transmitter conducted spurious emissions; range of open loop power control; access probe output power; range of closed loop power control; standby output power and gated output power; and receiver conducted spurious emissions. Delivery: stock.
