Keysight software enables industry’s fastest realization of RF systems

Keysight Sys-Parameter simulation with off-the-shelf component datasheet eliminates RF system hardware iterations

Keysight Technologies announced the latest release of Genesys 2015. Designed for circuit and system designers, the software features breakthrough Keysight Sys-Parameters that enables RF system simulation with off-the-shelf component datasheets; and comprehensive RF circuit synthesis to enable the industry’s fastest realization of RF systems and circuits.

Keysight Sys-Parameters define RF system component parameters such as amplifier P1dB, IP3, gain and noise-figure over frequency, temperature and bias in a convenient spreadsheet format that designers can use directly in RF system simulation. This eliminates the tedious creation of non-standard data files or writing of custom programs to interpolate the data; addressing a long unfulfilled need of the RF industry to use component datasheet specifications in fast design simulations instead of wasteful prototyping iterations.

Genesys 2015 accepts multi-dimensional Sys-Parameter data in a regular spreadsheet format that a user creates from RF component datasheets. The software also provides Sys-Parameter libraries from Mini-Circuits and Analog Devices. Easy access to Sys-Parameters during design enables designers to accurately evaluate and select available RF system components before hardware implementation; thereby eliminating wasteful iterations.

“Keysight worked closely with leading RF system component vendors and designers during the development of Genesys 2015 software,” said How-Siang Yap, Genesys product planning manager with Keysight EEsof EDA. “As a result, industry now has a common RF design platform to help designers quickly and accurately sample and evaluate parts in an RF system before purchasing them.”
