Agilent Technologies Inc. announced shipment of its GoldenGate 2012.10 RFIC simulation, verification and analysis software.
The 2012 release offers RFIC designers a host of technology enhancements for accelerated design verification, extended design-for-manufacturing solutions and improved links to system design. Additionally, new licensing models offer users greater purchasing flexibility.
GoldenGate 2012 accelerates design verification through a number of technology enhancements that allow users to set up distributed simulations, run them with unmatched performance, and display and analyze massive amounts of data.
Agilent also offers GoldenGate users an extended parallel simulation license at a fraction of the cost of the base GoldenGate simulator license. It is supported in any scenario launching a parallel simulation, including ADE-XL in Cadence Virtuoso.
X-parameters* generation is another key capability of GoldenGate 2012. It allows designers to capture the nonlinear behavior of active components such as amplifiers and save the data for quick use in simulation models in RF system or circuit designs, while also hiding all intellectual property.
Other new and improved capabilities in GoldenGate 2012 include:
GoldenGate is a trusted simulation, verification and analysis solution available for integrated RF circuit design within the Cadence Virtuoso design flow. Its unique simulation algorithms are optimized for the demands of today’s complex RF circuit designs, enabling full characterization of complete transceivers prior to tape-out. GoldenGate is part of Agilent’s RFIC simulation, analysis and verification solution, which also includes Momentum for 3-D planar electromagnetic simulation, SystemVue and Ptolemy wireless test benches for system-level verification, and the Advanced Design System data display for advanced data analysis.
