Agilent Technologies announced that SystemVue, its platform for communications and aerospace/defense systems design, supports high-performance distributed computing. System architects of wireless, 4G smartphone and radar applications can now verify next-generation system performance up to 64 times faster using Linux-based grid computing managers such as the IBM Platform Load Sharing Facility, the company says.
SystemVue 2013.08 includes the W1712 Distributed Computing Eight-Pack, which integrates with enterprise grid managers, and provides concurrent licensing for up to eight dataflow simulations (and necessary add-on libraries). It also allows users to control simulation jobs directly from the SystemVue interface.
The W1712 is stackable in steps of eight, making accelerated validation of user algorithms in MATLAB, C++, and native SystemVue dataflow formats scalable across large server farms. Because the software collates simulation data into a single result, users can automate regression suites for faster sign-off on design requirements.
"Our largest SystemVue customers asked us to help address the complexity of verification for multi-format smartphones and modern electronic warfare and defense systems," said Todd Cutler, general manager of Agilent EEsof EDA. "By accelerating distributed simulations on Linux, designers can now validate algorithms against instrument-grade reference libraries, saving design iterations and lowering the risk of defects during the fabrication of critical integrated circuits."
