Agilent Simulation Library Verifies Front-end Designs for MIMO

October 31, 2008

Agilent’s Advanced Design System (ADS) 2008 Update 2 provides new updated wireless verification models that are compliant with Version 8.3 of the emerging 3GPP Long Term Evolution (LTE) standard. The new models support creation of Frame structure 1 – FS1 (FDD) multiple input-multiple output (MIMO) signals in 2x2 downlink configurations.

Using the powerful co-simulation of Agilent ADS, designers of early radios can now verify their RF front-end design performance when working together with new MIMO antenna systems. Leakage between antennas, which results in corruption of modulated signal performance, can be easily verified with this updated Agilent library.

This update to the E8895 ADS 3GPP LTE library continues the leadership of Agilent Technologies in LTE design, verification and test solutions.
