Agilent adds transceiver model library to ADS EDA software

Santa Clara, Calif. — Agilent Technologies Inc. has announced the availability of its first transceiver model library, developed in collaboration with Altera Corp., for use with Agilent's Advanced Design System EDA software. This multi-gigabit transceiver library is said to reduce development costs and increase productivity compared with classical analog simulation methods for multi-GHz printed-circuit-board and backplane signal integrity design and analysis.

The Stratix II GX Model Library is available to prospective customers from Altera. Agilent will conduct a live demonstration of the Stratix II GX FPGA and the Stratix II GX Model Library at DesignCon 2008.

Advanced Design System is a high-frequency, high-speed electronic design automation software platform. Recent releases of the software include new signal integrity capabilities such as the addition of serializer/deserializer (SERDES)/Verilog analog mixed-signal co-simulation for a more complete signal integrity design flow for serial links.
