On February 01, 2010, this writer published the first of what became two major EDA WEEKLY articles about Santa Rosa CA based
Agilent EEsof EDA, the leading supplier of electronic design automation software for high-frequency and high-speed system, circuit, and modeling applications.

While Agilent EEsof's financials have not been routinely published separately from those of the overall Agilent Electronic Measurement Group in which Agilent EEsof resides, the EDA industry generally acknowledges Agilent EEsof's market leadership position in annual revenue generation in its Radio Frequency (RF) niche.

The second EDA WEEKLY article on Agilent EEsof appeared on March 29, 2010.

These two articles may be viewed at the following URL's:

Now, on to

Given the ongoing economic difficulties many companies have endured over the last twelve months, this writer was especially interested in how Agilent EEsof has fared during that period, and in what changes might have taken place within the enterprise.

Any concern was completely unwarranted. This writer discovered that Agilent EEsof experienced one of its best years thus far, and it ended the year with the best revenue quarter in its history!

“Our customers are definitely designing their ways out of the recession,” observed
Todd Cutler, Marketing Senior Manager of Agilent EEsof. “Designing new products and/or products for new markets are proven means to position a company for success as the economy improves. To do that, you need effective and modern design tools, and we are grateful that customers are choosing Agilent EEsof more than ever before.”

Considering the number of new innovations in its own software over the past year, it seems EEsof has been following its own mantra. Agilent EEsof's fastest growing new business is in the area of electronic-system-level (ESL) design.
In January 2011, Agilent EEsof announced the industry's first commercially available LTE-Advanced product, an Agilent SystemVue design library. The new system design library, an option to Agilent's SystemVue 2011 software, is available today. Wireless system architects and chipset makers working to provide the 4G network 1-Gbps peak download speed can now use Agilent's W1918 LTE-Advanced library for earlier verification of physical layer (PHY) algorithms and system performance.

Agilent also saw its business volume double in the area of electromagnetic simulation (EM). Agilent now offers all three major types of EM simulation technologies: (1) Method of Moments for 3D planar structures, (2) Finite Element (FEM), and (3) Finite Difference Time Domain (FDTD) for full 3D structures.

EMPro 3D EM product offers both FEM and FDTD and enables designers to analyze a variety of structures from high-speed connectors to handset antennas. “Our 3D planar and FEM EM simulators are fully integrated in the ADS platform,” commented
Charles Plott , Product Marketing and Planning Manager for Agilent EEsof. “Customers value the productivity they gain by working in a single integrated environment.”
