Agilent Technologies Accelerates Smartphone, Defense Simulations by a Factor of 64

New Capabilities Harness Compute Clusters for Faster System-Level Validation and Test

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — September 24, 2013 — Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today announced that SystemVue, its premier platform for communications and aerospace/defense systems design, supports high-performance distributed computing. System architects of wireless, 4G smartphone and radar applications can now verify next-generation system performance up to 64 times faster using Linux-based grid computing managers such as the IBM Platform Load Sharing Facility.

SystemVue 2013.08 introduces the W1712 Distributed Computing Eight-Pack, which integrates with enterprise grid managers, provides concurrent licensing for up to eight dataflow simulations (and necessary add-on libraries). It also allows users to control simulation jobs directly from the SystemVue interface.

The W1712 is stackable in steps of eight, making accelerated validation of user algorithms in MATLAB, C++, and native SystemVue dataflow formats scalable across large server farms. Because the software collates simulation data into a single result, users can easily automate regression suites for faster sign-off on design requirements.

“Our largest SystemVue customers asked us to help address the complexity of verification for multi-format smartphones and modern electronic warfare and defense systems,” said Todd Cutler, general manager of Agilent EEsof EDA. “By accelerating distributed simulations on Linux, designers can now validate algorithms against instrument-grade reference libraries, saving design iterations and lowering the risk of defects during the fabrication of critical integrated circuits.”

SystemVue 2013.08 Highlights

SystemVue 2013.08 also introduces several new products and key capabilities, including:

U.S. Pricing and Availability

SystemVue 2013.08 is now available for download at Prices start at $17,687. A free, 30-day evaluation copy is available at An image of the new libraries is available at

Agilent will demonstrate SystemVue 2013.08, along with its newest test solutions in microwave, millimeter-wave and submillimeter-wave systems, antennas and propagation and wireless technologies at European Microwave Week (Booth 105), Oct. 6-11 at the Nürnberg Convention Center in Nuremberg, Germany. A 10-year Platinum Sponsor, Agilent will also present a number of workshops, including a hands-on 3-D electromagnetic workshop using EMPro and another on correlating microwave measurements between handheld and benchtop analyzers using FieldFox. Registration is required to attend either workshop.
