PathWave System Design (SystemVue) Virtual Test Bench (VTB)
Starting with PathWave Advanced Design System (ADS) 2021, Verification Test Bench (VTB) is called Virtual Test Bench (VTB) and also supports multiple PathWave System Design (SystemVue) VTB release versions.
PathWave System Design (SystemVue) Virtual Test Bench (VTB) is an add-on that provides preconfigured test benches to Advanced Design System (ADS) circuit designers. It helps them, during all the design phases (sizing/design/verification), to ensure that the key figures of merits of their designs such as EVM or BER, meet the specifications of modern wireless communications.
PathWave System Design (SystemVue) VTBs boast a wide variety of standards:
- Application-driven testbenches like Digital Pre-Distortion.
The VTB components provide signal generation terminals (where the DUT input needs to be connected) and signal analysis terminals (where the DUT output needs to be connected). The generated signals are real world complex modulated waveforms that are wireless standard compliant. Signal generation and analysis is done by the PathWave System Design (SystemVue) Data Flow simulation engine.
Note: PathWave System Design (SystemVue) VTBs includes virtual test benches from all previously released ADS versions.
- For SystemVue 2022 Update 0.2, refer to PathWave System Design (SystemVue) 2022 Update 0.2 System Requirements.
