Agilent Technologies Inc. has announced a stereo 3D viewer capability for the Momentum G2 Element and FEM Element electromagnetic (EM) simulators in its Advanced Design System (ADS) EDA platform. The new stereo 3D viewer uses NVIDIA Quadro graphics processing units (GPUs) and NVIDIA’s 3D Vision quad buffered stereo technology to render electric and magnetic fields and currents for scientists and engineers in high-resolution 3D.
The stereo 3D viewer consists of a support download that enhances ADS 2009 Update 1. It requires a computer equipped with an NVIDIA Quadro FX 3800 or higher professional graphics solution, NVIDIA 3Vision stereoscopic glasses, and a 3D Vision ready 120-Hz display.
“Agilent’s stereo 3D viewer capability is cutting-edge technology that design, signal integrity, EMI, and layout engineers can use to review the layout and fix problems ahead of tape out,” said Jeff Brown, general manager of the Professional Solutions Group at NVIDIA. “Engineers can see time and cost savings benefits from this solution by identifying and solving critical issues in today’s multi gigabit-per-second board and package designs.”
Quad buffered stereo is enabled with 3D stereoscopic glasses and displays, driven by NVIDIA Quadro FX solutions.
