Agilent Technologies has announced that the latest version of the Genesys computer-aided- engineering (CAE) software, Genesys2007.08, is now shipping. The software provides realistic statistical component variations as part of its simulations, along with yield optimization at a price that is comparable with consumer-oriented computational software. According to Daren McClearnon, Product Marketing Manager with Agilent's EEsof EDA Division, "The inspiration for our enhanced statistical capability originated with one of our larger customers using six-sigma design techniques." The new software allows RF and microwave companies to adopt high-yield techniques for their own design and manufacturing processes.
