Agilent Technologies Inc. has revealed that SystemVue, its platform for communications and aerospace/defence systems design, now supports high-performance distributed computing. The solution enables system architects of wireless, 4G smartphone and radar applications to verify next-generation system performance up to 64 times faster using Linux-based grid computing managers such as the IBM Platform Load Sharing Facility, stated the company.

SystemVue 2013.08 introduces the W1712 Distributed Computing Eight-Pack, which integrates with enterprise grid managers, provides concurrent licensing for up to eight dataflow simulations (and necessary add-on libraries). It also allows users to control simulation jobs directly from the SystemVue interface.

The W1712 is stackable in steps of eight, making accelerated validation of user algorithms in MATLAB, C++ and native SystemVue dataflow formats scalable across large server farms. Because the software collates simulation data into a single result, users can easily automate regression suites for faster sign-off on design requirements.

SystemVue 2013.08 also features a stand-alone W1711 SystemVue Engine that supports Linux, distributed computing and scripting with SystemVue's API. Its W1902 Digital Modem Library offers references for 40 popular modulation formats. Additionally, it boasts breakthrough W1719 RF System simulation support for wideband applications with distortion, noise and hundreds of carriers, stated the firm.

The W1712 has direct support for digital up-conversion in the wideband, modular Agilent M8190A arbitrary waveform generator, as well as support for Agilent's M9391A PXI vector signal analyser and M9381A PXI vector signal generator though Command Expert 1.2. It also flaunts reference library improvements to support phased-array radars, Beidou2 satellite navigation, Bluetooth smartphone networking, digital predistortion and frequency-dependent VCSEL models for gigabit SerDes links.

SystemVue 2013.08 is available for download. Prices start at Rs.11.12 lakh ($17,687).
