PathWave RF Synthesis (Genesys)

RF/microwave circuit synthesis and simulation software for circuit board and subsystem designers

Accelerate RF Design Tasks From Hours to Minutes

Analyze RF and microwave circuits and systems with fast simulation and powerful optimization tools. Explore performance trade-offs with automatic circuit synthesis technology. PathWave RF Synthesis (Genesys) provides entry-level functionality suitable for all RF and microwave circuit board and subsystem designers.

  • Simulate and build RF systems with real parts
  • Create high-performance circuits with synthesis models
  • Identify and fix circuit performance degradation
  • Convert ideal electrical designs to physical implementation
  • Automatically create custom filter topologies
  • Analyze, tune, and optimize designs with co-simulation

Avoid Costly Mistakes Downstream

Identify RF design errors missed by traditional spreadsheet calculations with PathWave Circuit Design. With this entry-level design environment — including circuit, system, and electromagnetic simulators — you will gain confidence in your design reviews before hardware realization. Just a few mouse clicks and you can watch as your matching network is synthesized and optimized automatically. Then, transfer the design to PathWave Advanced Design System (ADS) for inclusion into a more complex design.
