Provides access to the PathWave System Design (SystemVue) high-performance dataflow simulation engine and to simulate pre-defined standard-compliant test benches in PathWave Advanced Design System (ADS) or with PathWave RFIC Design (GoldenGate) to easily validate circuit performance against modulated metrics such as EVM, BER, or ACPR.


The W3048E PathWave VTB Engine includes:

  • Access to high-performance dataflow simulation engine to simulate a pre-configured, standard-compliant test bench
  • Design optimization against system-level performance, such as error vector magnitude (EVM), adjacent channel leakage ratio (ACLR), and bit error rate (BER)
  • Shareable for use in Pathwave ADS and Pathwave RFIC Design

The Pathwave VTB Engine enables circuit designers to easily validate circuit performance against standard-compliant waveforms and measurements such as EVM/ACLR in transmitters, or sensitivity/desensitization in receivers. Latest wireless standards such as 5G are difficult to budget at the circuit level, and require simulation using the actual standard-compliant modulated signals in order to fully capture third order nonlinearities, AM/AM and AM/PM distortions, spectral regrowth, and memory effects.
