Agilent Debuts Advanced Design System 2004A Software for Circuit Design

6/2/2004 - Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) introduced Agilent's Advanced Design System (ADS) 2004A, a new version of its high-frequency electronic design automation (EDA) software that offers significantly improved ease-of-use and productivity for common circuit-design tasks.

ADS 2004A enables design engineers to easily access the functionality of ADS for common circuit-design tasks, including basic operations in schematic, simulation setup, linear simulation, tuning and viewing results. High-frequency EDA software vendors typically are forced to make a trade-off between creating a product with depth and flexibility to accomplish challenging design tasks, and one that is easy to use but limited in its capabilities. With ADS 2004A, this trade-off is not necessary.

"ADS 2004A software gives our customers an easier, more efficient design flow while retaining all of the power that ADS is known for," said Joe Civello, product marketing manager at Agilent's EEsof EDA division. "All designers -- whether new, occasional or power users of ADS -- will appreciate the usability and performance enhancements in ADS 2004A."

Agilent's ADS offers a complete, front-to-back high-frequency design, simulation, layout and verification solution in a single, integrated design flow. ADS 2004A offers many enhancements that improve productivity, including:
