Advanced Design System (ADS)

Market-leading circuit design and simulation software

EDA Platform for Multi-Technology Simulation

Keysight ADS is the premier electronic design automation (EDA) platform for the design of high-frequency and high-speed digital physical layer components from single purpose amplifiers to complex RF modules and high-speed digital boards. The ADS platform forms the basis for RF/Microwave, Signal/Power Integrity, Power/Quantum Electronics design software bundles for these applications:

  • 3D integration of multi-technology including chips, packaging, interconnects, shielding, boards, and I/O connectors.
  • Superior circuit, electromagnetic, electro-thermal, and statistical simulation technology ensures the most accurate simulation before hardware prototyping to eliminate wasteful iterations.
  • Flexible deployment into your design process with Python scripting support to automate integration with external applications.
  • Seamless electro-magnetic (EM) and circuit co-simulation for accurate 3D heterogeneous integrated module design.
  • Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) to generate simulation models from measured or published data.
  • Open Access architecture, the world's most widely used, open reference database for IC and electronic design, for EDA tool interoperability without lossy database translation.

Gain Design Confidence

Data helps teams visualize whether their designs meet specifications. The data display and analytics capabilities in ADS produce graphs, charts, and diagrams to give you design confidence. Quickly accelerate your design with wizards, design guides, and templates. The complete design flow includes schematic, layout, circuit, electro-thermal, and electromagnetic simulations.

Overcome High-Speed Digital Design Challenges

Signal and power integrity are becoming more important as frequency and speed increase in printed circuit boards (PCBs). Losses associated with transmission line effects can cause failures in electronic devices. Modeling traces, vias, and interconnects are necessary to simulate the board accurately. Improve high-speed link performance in PCB designs with integrated circuit design and electromagnetic simulators customized for power and signal integrity analysis.

Increase Reliability in Power Converter Designs

Power supplies, solar inverters, and electric vehicles are driving the need for more efficiency in power device designs. The technology that enables an increase in efficiency is wide-bandgap materials such as Silicon Carbide and Gallium Nitride. Model modern materials and switch-mode power supplies to optimize power device designs for maximum efficiency.
