Concurrent design

Design RF, Analog, and Digital Circuits on the Same PCB

<p>RF and PCB parallel design reduces time-to-market, delivers accurate simulation, reduces over-design margins, and enables cross-team collaboration between RF and PCB design teams.</p>

RF and PCB parallel design reduces time-to-market, delivers accurate simulation, reduces over-design margins, and enables cross-team collaboration between RF and PCB design teams.

Full RF design support

RF and System Design Integration

<p>With the Advanced RF option, RF circuits can be designed directly in PADS Professional or transferred to PADS from Keysight ADS. No more schematic black boxes: these are true RF schematics in system-level design. To fully support RF design, PADS Professional was engineered to understand RF, not just translate it.</p>

With the Advanced RF option, RF circuits can be designed directly in PADS Professional or transferred to PADS from Keysight ADS. No more schematic black boxes: these are true RF schematics in system-level design.

Reduce time-to-market

RF and PCB Parallel Design

<p>Today’s PCB designs often include multiple RF modules, with high-speed digital and analog circuitry in tight proximity. Up to 75% of total cycle time can be spent on RF circuits. The PADS Professional combination of engine and modeling technologies</br> enables you to implement a fast, efficient, unified design flow.</p>
