Software offers wireless standard-compliant design

07 January 2014

The latest release of GoldenGate from Agilent Technologies provides EVM-, BER- and ACPR-type measurements.

RFIC designers can analyse and diagnose problem areas in large-signal analysis. Additionally, it offers new capabilities to reduce simulation time and increase design efficiency.

It introduces new verification test benches that allow RFIC designers to easily validate and optimise designs using standard-compliant waveforms and measurements such as EVM/ACLR in transmitters, or sensitivity/desensitisation in receivers.

A new sensitivity analysis has been added that can be applied when analysing RF circuits, even when running large-signal analyses.

Other enhancements are the fast circuit envelope model export from GoldenGate to SystemVue, which now includes noise support that is critical for any receiver test.
Fast yield contributor support in envelope transient and S-parameter analyses speed-up Monte Carlo simulations for process and mismatch variations. It also provides a contributor table to identify root cause devices and/or blocks.

An oscillator algorithm specifically targets high-Q oscillators and high-level transient accuracy control and an automatic steady-state detection and auto-harmonic estimation within initial transient reduces simulation time and is claimed to increase design efficiency.
