Agilent Technologies Inc. announced that the Agilent EEsof EDA W1462 SystemVue FPGA Architect now supports on-board FPGA design and simulation with the Agilent M9703A AXIe wideband digital receiver/digitizer.
Agilent Technologies Inc. announced several innovations for the 2014 release of its industry-leading suite of device modeling and characterization software tools. The suite comprises Agilent EEsof EDA’s Integrated Circuits Characterization and Analysis Program (IC-CAP), Model Builder Program (MBP), and Model Quality Assurance (MQA).
Delcross Technologies announced the Version 4.0 release of its Savant™ software for modeling the installed performance of antennas on electrically large vehicles. Among the many new features in this release are multi-bounce edge-diffraction rays that improve accuracy by modeling antenna interactions with shadowed portions of the platform, an integrated workflow with CST STUDIO SUITE® 2014 for importing full-wave antenna models for hybrid simulation, a new Scene Tree capability to enable articulated geometry assemblies and a new feature for generating parametric CAD models and platform parts.
Agilent Technologies Inc. announced that Nitronex, a GaAs labs company and leading producer of GaN-on-silicon RF power devices, has selected Agilent to provide a complete GaN design flow that spans both device modeling and circuit simulation. The flow uses Agilent EEsof EDA’s IC-CAP model extraction software and Advanced Design System (ADS) circuit and system simulator—both market-leading platforms in RF and microwave design.
Anritsu Co. announces a working cooperation with Wild River Technology. The two companies are collaborating to provide test solutions that meet the rigorous test requirements associated with high-speed serial data interconnects, SERDES testing, cables, and backplanes used in NGNs.
COMSOL Inc., a leading global provider of engineering simulation software, announced the release of COMSOL Multiphysics® 4.4, the latest version of its powerful platform for the modeling and simulation of electrical, mechanical, fluid, and chemical applications.
Modelithics Inc. has collaborated with TriQuint Semiconductor Inc. to develop high-accuracy simulation models for five popular Gen II GaN Transistors from TriQuint, including the TGF2023-2-01, TGF2023-2-02, TGF2023-2-05, TGF2023-2-10 and TGF2023-2-20.
Astronomers using the new Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) have imaged a region around a young star where dust particles can grow by clumping together. This is the first time that such a dust trap has been clearly observed and modelled. It solves a long-standing mystery about how dust particles in discs grow to larger sizes so that they can eventually form comets, planets and other rocky bodies. The results are published in the journal Science on 7 June 2013.
