Enabling High-Volume 4G and Wireless LAN DeploymentTo address the needs of the commercial wireless space, SystemVue 2013.01 enables system-level modeling of multistandard radio (MSR) performance under 3GPP Release-9 TS 37, and digital predistortion (DPD) for high-volume power amplifiers in 4G/LTE and wireless LAN 802.11ac applications. With new MSR simulation templates and expanded 2G/3G standards support, the W1916 3G baseband library now allows SystemVue to validate backward compliance of 4G/LTE equipment alongside legacy GSM, EDGE, WCDMA, and interfering signals, both in-band and inter-band. Moreover, many of these same base station, femtocell, WLAN, and handset designs employ a less expensive predistortion technique that improves RF system performance, without adding significant battery drain or complexity. The updated W1716 DPD Builder provides modeling support for look-up tables, along with a sophisticated new crest-factor reduction algorithm. “Our customers doing high-volume wireless applications asked us to support existing 3G intellectual property and methodologies as they transition to 4G,” said Daren McClearnon, Agilent’s SystemVue marketing manager. “We successfully addressed this customer request, and SystemVue is now being evaluated throughout the supply chain as a way to provide of IP-neutral virtual integration.” SystemVue 2013.01 also provides updates to a variety of libraries and design personalities.
