RF system design software

21 March 2012 Design Automation

Agilent Technologies announced the latest release of its low-cost software for RF and microwave board design - Genesys 2012. The updated software provides enhancements in RF system simulation (including electromagnetic, circuit and statistical simulation), plus features to help designers improve the reliability of their systems.

Genesys 2012 simplifies analysis of RF systems with multi-stage conversions that enable system architects to easily visualise spurious signals across a broad frequency sweep.

Along with its unique root cause analysis capabilities, the software now gives RF system designers the power to quickly determine the source and path of spurious frequencies across the entire frequency range of the system. This enables efficient troubleshooting of the system architecture and frequency plan during system design, before hardware implementation. That, in turn, eliminates costly hardware rework during system integration.

Genesys 2012 is the result of customer feedback obtained during a lengthy early access program involving a large number of users. The feedback guided development of the software, resulting in useful features such as a configurable auto-save function to protect Genesys designs from computer or network failures.

The 2012 release delivers significant improvements to the planar EM simulator Momentum GXF, including a quadrangle mesher to efficiently mesh a planar layout with the fewest number of unknowns. It also provides a one-click link to Agilent’s EMPro software for immediate full 3D EM simulation without having to redraw the structure, assign material properties or port locations. Monte Carlo statistical analysis results can now be exported into a spreadsheet for further analysis and reporting.
