Keysight’s PathWave Memory Designer shortens design cycles and reduces project delays
As double data rate (DDR) memory technology improves with every new generation, engineers face new design and validation challenges. Considering this, Keysight has announced PathWave Memory Designer, a new double data rate (DDR) memory simulation capability that is part of PathWave Advanced Design System (ADS) 2019. The new capability makes it easy for developers to compare simulated data with actual measured results, reducing the time required to complete product development workflows, according to the announcement.
Memory Designer shortens design cycles
Keysight noted that PathWave ADS Memory Designer connects simulation and test workflows, addressing common DDR memory design challenges with new workflows that automate routine tasks and harness data analytics to gain faster actionable insight into simulation data.
“Creating better efficiency in the product development workflow is an industry challenge; particularly bridging the silo between design and test,” said Todd Cutler, vice president and general manager of design and test software at Keysight. “Keysight’s PathWave provides engineers with a method to gather, share, and analyze test and measurement data. Keysight’s Memory Designer for PathWave ADS provides a new workflow for the simulation of DDR which shortens the design cycle and reduces project delays.”
PathWave features include
According to the firm, Keysight PathWave helps customers accelerate engineering workflows through powerful software that enables agile, connected design and test, featuring:
- Open APIs and open source components that enable customers to customize the platform and integrate with their current hardware and software
- A scalable architecture that provides the flexibility to run computations on a dedicated workstation, in the public or private cloud, or on embedded instrument software
- Flexible consumption models that let companies utilize software when and where they need it
- Best-in-class measurement science that produces consistent, accurate results across design, test, and manufacturing environments.
