Agilent Technologies has released Genesys 2012, the latest version of its software for RF and microwave board design. 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.
According to the company, Genesys 2012 simplifies analysis of RF systems with multi-stage conversions that enable system architects to easily visualize spurious signals across a broad frequency sweep.
Along with its unique root-cause-analysis capabilities, Genesys now allows RF system designers 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 hardware rework during system integration.
The 2012 release delivers improvements to the planar EM simulator Momentum GXF, including a quadrangle mesher to efficiently mesh a planar layout with the fewest number of unknowns. Genesys 2012 also provides a one-click link to Agilent s EMPro software for immediate full 3-D EM simulation without having to redraw the structure, assign material properties or port locations.
