Momentum Product Will Be Used for Advanced, High-Frequency IC and
SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- (Business Wire)
Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today announced that Plextek
RF Integration, a UK-based company that designs and develops RFICs,
MMICs and microwave/millimeter-wave modules, has selected Agilent
software to simulate its new high-frequency circuit and MMIC designs.
After a thorough evaluation of available 3-D planar electromagnetic
software tools, Plextek RF Integration chose Agilent’s Momentum
simulator for its performance and flexibility. Accurate EM simulation
enables designers to improve the performance of their designs, while
increasing confidence that the manufactured product will meet
specifications. Momentum is integrated with Agilent’s Advanced
Design System and Genesys
RF and microwave design software.
In its evaluation, Plextek RFI used Momentum to simulate the performance
of a 57- to 64-GHz amplifier IC. The company also used Momentum to
develop a number of Ka-band ICs. In all cases, the software provided
excellent agreement between measured and modeled data. Additionally,
Momentum’s tight integration with ADS provided Plextek RFI with greater
ease of use, making its EM simulation of RFICs and MMICs quick and
“Designing advanced, high-frequency circuits and MMICs requires access
to the industry’s most advanced modeling and simulation tools,” said
Liam Devlin, chief executive officer at Plextek RFI. “The performance
and flexible features of Agilent’s Momentum software provides us the
functionality we need to maintain a leading edge in the highly
competitive wireless, microwave and millimeter-wave markets in which we
compete. Because of this, we plan to leverage this solution on future
design projects, including our current development of an LNA covering
the full 71- to 86-GHz range of E-band.”
“We are pleased Plextek RFI selected Momentum for its amplifier IC and
MMIC development,” said Joe Civello, ADS product planner at Agilent
EEsof EDA. “The accuracy, speed and capacity of our software are
enabling Plextek RFI to produce high-quality designs that can stand
apart from their competition.”
