Transceiver Library Increases Productivity for High-Speed Design
Thu, 04/03/2008 - 10:53am
Agilent Technologies, Inc. announces its transceiver model library that was developed in collaboration with Altera Corp. for use with Agilent's Advanced Design System EDA software. This multi-gigabit transceiver library reduces development costs and increases 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. 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.
