Telecom Lead America: Agilent Technologies’ latest release of SystemVue 2013.01 provides new application support for designing next-generation MIMO radar systems and wireless/4G infrastructure.
The T&M solutions provider says the latest release of SystemVue 2013.01, a platform for designing communications and defense systems, enables users to make critical decisions about RF and DSP architecture effectively.
Users will benefit as it reduces design iterations and project risk for emerging wireless and defense technologies, while allowing faster deployment.
In addition, SystemVue also allows radar architects to account for a variety of other system-level effects to render realistic virtual scenarios.
SystemVue’s W1905 radar model library now offers sophisticated signal-processing support for array-based radar technologies such as MIMO, phased-array and synthetic-aperture radars.
The new release enables radar architects to evaluate array-based radar architectures using approximately 70 simulation reference blocks and 50 application examples. They can also use their own signal-processing algorithms in a variety of modeling formats, including C++, math, FPGA/HDL and SystemC.
Dingqing Lu, senior application planner at Agilent, says its customers reduce their dependence on expensive flight-testing, ranges and dedicated hardware emulators by modeling the algorithms, RF transmit/receive path and environment, as well as linking to gigahertz-wide test equipment.
To address the needs of the commercial wireless space, SystemVue 2013.01 enables system-level modeling of multistandard radio (MSR) performance under 3GPP Release-9 TS 37, and digital predistortion (DPD) for high-volume power amplifiers in 4G/LTE and wireless LAN 802.11ac applications.
