Agilent Series (Part 1): Anticipate System Level Design Challenges: Bridging Design Domain Gaps

August 2, 2012

The Semiconductor SIG presents…

Agilent Technologies

Agilent Series Part 1 of 3

Today’s mobile communication systems use sophisticated signal processing to achieve high transmission rates. Leading-edge wireless systems must contend with more challenges as designs are expected to be multi-standard and reconfigurable. The complexity of digital signal processing is steadily growing, as it needs to compensate for the signal impairments caused by analog front-end blocks in nanometer process nodes. Systems involving baseband and analog/RF portions have traditionally been designed, simulated and verified separately due to the different mindsets of the engineers and the tools of the two domains. But going forward this approach will become  untenable, and adequate system-level design methodologies are required to find bridge between baseband and RF to deliver adequate performance at minimum cost.
