Exploring RF/uW and High-Speed Digital Design Challenges in PathWave Advanced Design System (ADS)


Learn the latest simulation and analysis techniques in Keysight's PathWave Advanced Design System (ADS) software for RF/uW and High-Speed Digital designers.
Electromagnetic (EM) interactions must be considered during the design of RF Modules, RFIC, MMIC and RF Boards to eliminate wasteful iterations and missed market windows for 5G, Aerospace/Defense and IoT applications.
The Keysight team will present how simulation and measurement techniques must work together to solve the multi-gigabit challenges of high-speed SerDes and parallel bus DDR.
