N3249D Advanced Electromagnetic Simulation Topics in ADS

3   Days | Classroom Training | Advantages of Keysight Training

Audience: Technical staff working in either the circuit or system level design environment and want a comprehensive overview of the Advanced Design System software for RF Board, MMIC, RFIC, and similar technologies.

This modular 3 day training course offered by Keysight Technologies covers advanced topics related to the use of the Method of Moments (Momentum) and Finite Element Method (FEM) electromagnetic simulators integrated into the Advanced Design System (ADS). Customers can select the days individually as appropriate.



  • This course builds on the skills gained in the 3-day ADS Fundamentals class. In particular, a thorough knowledge of the layout editor is required, as well as of the EM GUI, schematic capture, and data display. Understanding of fundamental RF and microwave concepts is also essential.
