Agilent Technologies introduces a WiMAX design exploration library for use with the company’s Advanced Design System (ADS) EDA software. The library, with its fully coded bit-error rate analysis, helps wireless systems designers and verification engineers speed development of communications products for broadband wireless access (BWA) applications. The IEEE 802.16-2004 standard, often generally referred to as WiMAX, specifies air interfaces for BWA systems. The WiMAX design exploration library provides preconfigured simulation setups, signal sources and fully coded BER analysis for simulation of the circuitry used in BWA designs. It speeds the development cycle by allowing system designers to analyze a system’s performance before all of its components are designed. The library works within the ADS environment and with the company’s Ptolemy simulator to streamline design and verification of Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM)-based, last-mile service designs.
