Note: Model number E8900A has been discontinued; however, the Design Environment feature/capability is now included in the W2200 Advanced Design System (ADS) Core

The information below is provided for reference only.

E8900A Design Environment is the graphical user interface for schematic entry and simulation setup within the Advanced Design System (ADS).

All schematic RF, system and DSP designs are captured within the Design Environment including the configuration of simulation and optimization, setting variables, viewing libraries, and running Design Guides.

The Design Environment provides the integration and design capture framework for plugging in other ADS modules, including simulators, layout, and models, libraries and Design Guides.

Product Highlights:

  • Smart Simulation Wizard
  • Electronic Notebook
  • Design Guide Developer Studio
  • Co-Simulation with Layout Components
  • Schematic/block diagram editor for entry of system, RF, and DSP designs
  • Designs and data files structured in your preferred hierarchy
  • Easy-to-learn, flexible user interface
  • RF/DSP/EM design technologies integrated into one user interface, eliminating the need for separate tools and file transfers
  • Extensive ability to customize the environment to specific user needs
  • Simulation Instruments
  • Library Browser
  • Design Hierarchy Viewer

Product Description:
The Design Environment provides the integration of all the Advanced Design System design technologies under one user interface.

Design entry of system, RF circuit, and DSP designs is provided through a schematic page that offers both pull-down menus and a command toolbar, either of which may be customized. Components can be accessed through logically organized palettes, as well as textual library lists or a library browser dialog.

One or more simulations may be specified, controlled, and launched directly from the schematic. Designs may be used as subnetworks in other designs linked through the schematic page; parameters can be passed to such subnetworks, which then serve as custom models.
