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.
UBM Tech, the daily source of essential business and technical information for decision makers in the electronics industry, held its annual DesignCon conference and expo last week in Santa Clara, CA. Met with enthusiastic industry reception, DesignCon 2014 was attended by more than 5,000 members of the chip, package, board and systems design communities.
Intercept Technology Inc., a leading provider of PCB, RF, Hybrid, and high-speed design software, recently released a version of its Mozaix schematic design software that no longer requires top level sheets and block symbols to build hierarchy in a schematic.
Modelithics Inc. welcomed Syfer to the Modelithics Vendor Partner (MVP) Program. Syfer and Modelithics have collaborated to develop a Microwave Global Model™ for Syfer’s 0603 case-size High Q Ultra-Low ESR capacitor family. These simulation models are substrate scalable, part-value scalable, pad scalable, and orientation selectable (vertical or horizontal surface-mount).
Agilent Technologies Inc. introduced Agilent EEsof EDA’s Controlled Impedance Line Designer. The software product quickly and accurately optimizes stack up and line geometry for multigigabit-per-second chip-to-chip links, using the most relevant metric.
