Cadence Enables Early Validation of Next-Gen 4G/LTE Wireless Designs With Rohde & Schwarz T&M Solution

SAN JOSE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Oct 05, 2009 -- Cadence Design Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CDNS), the leader in global electronic design innovation, today announced that it has developed a protocol testing solution that enables early validation of next-generation 4G/LTE wireless SoC/ASIC designs. The solution integrates the Cadence® Incisive® Palladium® accelerator/emulator and the Rohde & Schwarz CMW500 LTE network emulator, allowing wireless/mobile companies to test their complex designs much earlier than when silicon becomes available, thereby providing them with an opportunity to leapfrog over competitors.

"Validating 4G/LTE protocol months ahead of having silicon in hand can have a real impact in what has become a most competitive market," said Joerg Deiss, director of business development of Rohde & Schwarz (R&S). "With this solution and our R&S CMW500, customers are now able to use the same tests and equipment from ASIC design to final RF system validation."

Traditionally, wireless protocol testing required the final silicon to be available before thorough protocol testing could begin. The Cadence-R&S solution enables engineers to test and validate next-generation 4G/LTE designs much earlier in the design cycle while allowing continued refinements to improve the design and performance. Users can validate design assumptions of SoC performance and power by using the actual protocol and system-level stimuli, boosting confidence that a design will comply with the advanced protocol.

"This collaboration highlights our ability and desire to serve the verification needs of a fast-moving market segment like wireless and mobile," said Ran Avinun, system design and verification marketing group director, Cadence Design Systems, Inc. "Teaming with leading companies like Rohde & Schwarz enables Cadence to meet the design and verification needs of engineers working on the most advanced projects."
