Key Features & Specifications

  • General system-level modeling and design with SystemVue
  • RF System Architecture support for RF transceiver design
  • Phased Array / Beamforming support for Dataflow and RF System simulators, and links between the two simulation domains for evaluating RF, Digital, and Hybrid beamforming architectures

Description

SystemVue ESL Design SoftwareThe W1467 SystemVue Array Architect bundle provides system architects in 5G, Radar/EW, and Satellite communications with the essential tools to evaluate phased array and beamforming subsystems, including RF, Digital, and Hybrid beamforming architectures. Now you can consider RF nonlinear & noise effects, Gain/Phase quantization, and Monte Carlo variations effects on total beam quality, sidelobe levels, and effective radiated power. Also supports dynamic system-level scenarios with algorithms for adaptive beamforming.

What are Customers Saying?

  • “The additions made this year have greatly increased the value of using SystemVue to analyze phased arrays over spreadsheets. The three features that are most helpful are the addition of S-parameters to the phased array components, the multi-tone frequency analysis, and the far field block in DataFlow. Now I can have 1 array model that I build with a phased array analysis and use RF link for dynamic analysis”
  • “Like single tone and multi-tone intermod and harmonic simulation in phased array analysis”
  • “Analysis of system designs that took about a day to run in SystemVue that take a week to complete in our alternative tools”
  • “We have a fully integrated N channel transmit receive module implemented in SystemVue that closely matches expected parameters”
  • “Keysight did everything we asked in Phased Array Design kit”
  • “I am excited to start using this tools in detailed AESA system design”

Who should buy the W1467?

  • System Architects who work with phased arrays in either Baseband or RF beamforming.
  • Satellite (New Space) and other communications architects.
  • Existing users of the W1719 RF System Design Kit (Spectrasys) may wish to upgrade this bundle.
  • Existing users of the W1461 SystemVue Comms Architect and W1464 SystemVue RF System Architect bundles may wish to upgrade to the W1467 SystemVue Array Architect bundle.
