Palo Alto, Calif.A WiMAX design exploration library is now available for Agilent Technologies Inc.'s Advanced Design System (ADS) EDA software. A key feature of the library is a fully coded bit-error-rate (BER) analysis that should help wireless system design and verification engineers hasten development of their broadband wireless access products by letting them determine performance before the system is built.
In addition to performing a BWA analysis, the WiMAX design exploration comes with preconfigured set ups and signal sources. The library also works with Agilent's Ptolemy simulator to streamline design and verification of OFDM-based last mile designs.
The library can also be imported into the company's RF Design Environment, letting you access WiMAX test benches with Cadence Design System Inc.'s Virtuoso Custom IC platform.
The WiMAX design exploration library is available for purchase with the ADS 2005A Advanced Design System, which starts at about $8,400.
