Agilent introduces wireless test benches, sources and measurement capabilities for its Advanced Design System (ADS) 2004A EDA software that enable simulation of wireless designs to WLAN, 3GPP and TD-SCDMA standards. The capabilities allow RF circuit designers to verify subsystem performance in wireless communications products. The capabilities include configurable DSP-based modulated sources with RF and baseband outputs, a set of measurement expressions and a range of wireless test benches for 3GPP, WLAN and TD-SCDMA technologies. Measurements such as error vector magnitude and bit-error rate can be performed directly on the circuit schematic. The sources and measurements use, when appropriate, the same algorithms used in Agilent instruments to allow consistent verification from design to test.
