MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (January 18, 2007) - AVX Corporation, a leading manufacturer of advanced passive components, has developed a new software product library for Agilent's Advanced Design System (ADS). ADS is a powerful electronic design automation software tool that offers complete design integration to designers of RF products, such as cellular and portable phones, pagers, wireless networks, and radar and satellite communication systems. ADS features design links for RF architecture applications to generate complex, high-frequency systems and circuit designs faster.
"To assist design engineers and ultimately simplify and speed up the design process, we have created a library of AVX parts that work in conjunction with Agilent's ADS software," said Larry Eisenberger, AVX senior field applications engineer. "This library enables our customers to perform diagnostics on circuit designs before the manufacturing process, saving time and money."
AVX's Advanced Design System library includes the following products:
o Accu-P 0402 to 1210 sizes
o Accu-L 0402 to 0805 sizes
o Couplers LGA 0402 and 0603 sizes
o Couplers 0603 and 0805 Surface Mount
o Low Pass Filters 0603 and 0805 sizes
o 3dB couplers 0805 size
With a complete set of simulation technologies ranging from frequency- and time-domain circuits to electromagnetic fields, ADS lets designers fully characterize and optimize designs. The single, integrated design environment provides system and circuit simulators, along with schematic capture, layout, verification capability - eliminating the stops and starts associated with changing design tools mid-cycle.
