SystemVue simulation software enables 5G design, verification process

Keysight Technologies has announced the latest release of its SystemVue electronic system level (ESL) software. Offering unique phased-array antenna and other 5G functionality, Keysight EEsof EDA’s SystemVue 2017 provides designers with the first 5G design and verification process.

SystemVue is a simulation platform for system design and verification. The software enables users to combine existing baseband, RF and channel models for evaluation of the entire system. SystemVue 2017 allows designers to accurately design phased-array antennas for 5G mobile networks.

Unlike other tools on the market, SystemVue 2017 can account for RF effects like S-parameters of off-the-shelf phase shifters and attenuators, and X- or Sys-parameters of nonlinear amplifiers and mixers. With this capability, users can now characterize radiation of spurious intermodulation signals from the array in terms of direction and power. This information helps designers avoid interference with nearby antennas and to comply with FCC spectral emission rules.

SystemVue 2017 also adds functionality not possible with other 5G electronic design automation (EDA) solutions on the market today. The software allows designers to create pre-5G-compliant reference designs and validate hybrid RF-digital beamforming in 100-GHz millimeter wave (mmWave) channels. Support for Verizon and KT 5G wireless standards, and RF phased-array and multi-antenna diversity beamforming, is also provided. A Verizon-KT 5G library provides designers with a head start into the high-margin 5G market, by enabling pre-5G development now, and development with the 5G New Radio standard, once it becomes available.

“Keysight provides the largest array of design and measurement solutions being applied to wireless research and development," said Charles Plott, marketing and planning manager of Keysight Technologies’ Design Engineer Software organization. "Our powerful new 5G functionality in SystemVue 2017 is just another in that long line of solutions and a prime example of how we are innovating to help accelerate deployment of the fifth generation of mobile wireless.”

Additional Software Enhancements

SystemVue 2017 provides important new software features designed to enable early electronic product design based on emerging standards with high margin and volume potential:

  • New automotive radar library with unique pedestrian channel models

  • Enhanced LTE-Advanced baseband verification library for validating NB-IoT product designs

  • 802.11ax enhancement to the WLAN baseband verification library for designing even higher speed Wi-Fi networking

A medal for mobile medicine?
Medical services the world over are coming under great pressure to deliver high-quality healthcare and, at the same time control costs. Alongside this, patients are becoming far more involved in their wellbeing as well as wanting a high standard of healthcare with even greater convenience than before. As people are more mobile these days, mobile healthcare (mHealth) avoids the need to visit the doctor’s office and allows patients to provide health data to providers, as well as receive care, anywhere on the planet.
