SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE:A) today announced that the Agilent
SystemVue FPGA Architect now supports on-board FPGA design and
simulation with the AgilentM9703A
AXIe wideband digital receiver/digitizer.
flexible hardware design entry with custom HDL and graphical schematic
drawing using high-abstraction-level, primitive fixed-point blocks;
vendor-agnostic HDL code generation and third-party HDL co-simulation;
a fully optimized and automated hardware implementation flow for
leading-edge, high-performance digitization.
The new modeling and simulation capability reduces development time for
research and design validation teams working on early system prototyping
and development of advanced multichannel applications. As a result,
design and verification of electronic warfare systems and massive-MIMO
systems for 5G is accelerated, which in turn enables faster deployment.
The newly integrated FPGA design flow enables system architects and FPGA
engineers to download custom algorithms into Agilent digitizers with
on-board FPGAs using built-in template designs and intellectual property
cores with automatic push-button programming. The pre-defined FPGA
interface template makes it easy to co-simulate real-time custom
algorithms in the FPGA and top-level system modeling.
The W1462 SystemVue FPGA Architect is part of the SystemVue simulation
environment, Agilent’s premier platform for electronic system-level
design. Updates to the W1462 software include:
“SystemVue bridges a gap between high-performance user algorithms and
real-time, measurement validation for multi-channel, gigahertz-wide
applications like 5G and electronic warfare,” said Frank Ditore, Agilent
EEsof EDA’s SystemVue product planner. “The new capability accelerates
test development, while reducing the cost of narrowly-focused
proprietary hardware platforms by using the open interfaces of
commercial off-the-shelf system-level EDA software and superior test
