Keysight Technologies, Inc. has released PathWave Design 2020, which includes the latest releases of Keysight’s electronic design automation software to accelerate design workflows for radio frequency (RF) and microwave, 5G, and automotive design engineers. 

The PathWave Design 2020 software suite includes new releases of flagship products: PathWave Advanced Design System (ADS) 2020, PathWave RFIC Design (GoldenGate) 2020, PathWave System Design (SystemVue) 2020, and PathWave RF Synthesis (Genesys) 2020.

The PathWave Design 2020 software suite is made to help reduce the time engineers spend in the design and simulation phase, according to the company. Its libraries and customized simulators are built to reduce setup time and automation improvements reduce manual work. The software integrates circuit design, electromagnetic (EM) simulation, layout capabilities and system level modeling, reducing time needed for importing and exporting designs and fixing errors associated with changing tools. 

“Creating efficiency in the product development workflow is an industry challenge, particularly in design and simulation,” said Todd Cutler, vice president and general manager of design and test software at Keysight. “Keysight's PathWave Design 2020 provides engineers with new tools and software enhancements that shorten the design cycle and eliminate project delays by adding new efficiencies to their RF and microwave, 5G, and automotive work flows.”

Keysight’s PathWave software enables agile and connected design and test. It incorporates advanced analytics that create immediate, actionable insights for development and manufacturing teams. Keysight's new PathWave Design 2020 enables customers to:

  • lower costs and accelerate time to market by reducing design time;
  • simplify and automate data analysis on circuit simulations;
  • reduce EM simulation setup time with two new integrated EM simulators for RF and power electronics designers;
  • design safe vehicles with a new complex modeling environment for automotive radar; and
  • stay current on the latest 5G new radio (NR) standards with updated 5G virtual test benches.

Keysight is showcasing PathWave Design 2020 at the International Microwave Symposium (IMS) in the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center, June 4–6, 2019 at exhibit #606.
