Agilent announces its ultra-wideband (UWB) Design Exploration Library, which speeds design development. The company also announces that Daido Steel Co. Ltd. has selected Agilent's ADS 2004A EDA software and the new design library to help speed its development of bandpass filters used for UWB transceivers. ADS 2004A and the library will enable Daido Steel to verify transceiver performance before hardware prototyping begins. The library focuses on emerging ultra-wideband wireless technology and replaces the UWB DesignGuide, which handled only the transmitter portion of transceiver system design. The library allows users of ADS 2004A to perform a complete, system simulation of both the transmitter and receiver portions, compliant with the latest release of the multi-band Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) specification. It also provides preconfigured simulation setups, signal sources, and test benches for quick simulation of circuitry used in ultra-wideband applications.
