TRADE NEWS: Agilent Technologies’ LinkedIn ADS User Group Tops 3,000 Members

Stocks in this article: A

Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today announced that the Agilent EEsof EDA Advanced Design System (ADS) user group on LinkedIn now has over 3,000 members.

ADS is Agilent’s electronic design automation software for high-speed, high-frequency system, circuit and EM design simulation. The LinkedIn ADS user group, created in 2008, is a peer-to-peer discussion group for ADS users. It allows them to ask questions, share expertise and usability tips, find helpful application notes and build relationships with users all over the world.

“What’s extraordinary about the ADS user group is not just the number of members contributing to discussions, but the quality of those discussions,” said Joe Civello, ADS product manager with Agilent EEsof EDA. “We regularly see conversations between global users of ADS about a variety of applications.”

Many Agilent Certified Experts are active participants in LinkedIn. By sharing their technical and product expertise, they help advance the industry.

Some of the most popular discussions within the user group in 2013 centered on the following topics:

  • Optimization to improve initial design performance;
  • S-parameters in transient simulation;
  • Doherty power amplifier behavior models;
  • Envelope tracking using measured X-parameters*;
  • Power amplifier design in GaAs or CMOS;
  • Electromagnetic-circuit cosimulation using Momentum;
  • Creating custom 3D components for simulation in EMPro to be placed in ADS; and
  • Using ADS for high-speed digital applications.

As more customers turn to the Web for support, Agilent will continue to provide forums for online discussions. Agilent recently created the LinkedIn Agilent Silicon RFIC users group as a forum to discuss challenges specific to RFIC design, including design and implementation in ADS, electromagnetic modeling and simulation, and RFIC circuit simulation in Agilent’s GoldenGate software.

Agilent EEsof EDA hosts four other LinkedIn groups, six Agilent Technical Forums, three industry blogs, and an interactive YouTube channel. For a complete list, visit: Where can I find online communities of Agilent EEsof EDA users?
