July 19, 2012 -- As a vendor for high-end test and measurement solutions used in mobile radios and radio communication, Rohde & Schwarz depends on the availability of proprietary ASICs delivering key functionality and performance. The IC design engineers at Rohde & Schwarz make extensive use of an Accelerated Parallel Simulator (Virtuoso-APS) package to efficiently perform the complex simulations required to meet the demanding specifications of their high-frequency circuits.
The development of high-frequency circuits is very demanding, in multiple dimensions; not least, in order to meet tight time-to-market schedules, the use of efficient development systems is a must. Rohde & Schwarz' application of this circuit simulator provides the company's engineers with a number of unique features that allow them to obtain results in a very efficient way.
