NEC Compound Semiconductor Devices Selects Agilent Technologies' RF and Mixed-Signal Design Tools as New Standard for Mobile Communications RFIC Development



PALO ALTO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--July 28, 2003--Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today announced that NEC Compound Semiconductor Devices Ltd., has selected Agilent's RF and mixed-signal design software tools as its new standard for mobile communications RFIC development. Agilent's RF Design Environment (RFDE) provides NEC designers with efficient circuit simulation and system design.

"Compared to other available alternatives, RFDE offers the fastest RF simulation speed available, thereby shortening the overall RFIC development cycle," said Naotoshi Higashiyama, NEC Compound Semiconductor Devices Ltd. manager. "With RFDE, we have excellent foundry and design kit support, plus we are able to standardize on a widely accepted, proven platform."

Agilent RFDE is an RF electronic design automation (EDA) software environment that tightly integrates leading RF simulation technologies from Agilent Advanced Design System (ADS) into Cadence Design System's industry-standard analog and mixed-signal design flow. RFDE is a direct result of the Agilent alliance with Cadence, giving analog and RF engineers access to frequency-domain simulation technology from within the Cadence environment. Agilent offers a subscription-based model for purchase of licenses to access its circuit and system simulation technologies.

"NEC Compound Semiconductor Devices Ltd. is an important developer of communications ICs in Japan, and a strong supporter of our RF design environment," said Jim Tabuchi, marketing and services manager, Agilent EEsof EDA Division. "As operating frequencies continue to increase for these products, the RFDE frequency-based simulators play a critical role in the overall development of RFIC's, helping to get mobile and wireless communication products designed quickly and efficiently."
