Agilent Technologies Inc. and T-Tech Inc. announced a joint agreement to offer a solution for fast RF printed circuit board (PCB) design, verification and fabrication. The collaboration combines Agilent’s Genesys RF and microwave circuit design and verification software with T-Tech’s Quick Circuit System for PCB prototyping. The combination is expected to represent the industry’s first complete PCB design, verification and prototyping solution.

“Collaborating with T-Tech, Agilent can provide a complete turnkey design and fabrication flow for high-speed/high-frequency PCB designers,” said Todd Cutler, marketing and services manager of Agilent’s EEsof EDA division. “It will enable our customers to work from idea to physical prototype all within the Genesys software environment.”

“By partnering with Agilent to integrate its Genesys suite of EDA tools with our high-frequency, precision PCB fabrication machines, we will give our shared customers the ability to go from desktop design to physical prototype in hours instead of weeks or months,” said John Taylor, president of T-Tech.

Agilent’s Genesys is an integrated EDA software platform for RF and microwave designers and workgroups. From initial system architecture through final documentation, Genesys provides state-of-the-art performance in a single, easy-to-use design environment that is fast, powerful and accurate.
