Developed on the Keysight PathWave software platform, the PathWave Test 2020 software suite enables 5G, IoT and automotive engineers and managers to streamline test data processing and analysis to speed product introductions and secure a competitive advantage in the market.
PathWave Test 2020 software provides data sharing and management between platform software tools including test automation, advanced measurement, signal creation and generation, as well as data analytics. This integrated software platform allows application-tailored solutions to be developed and deployed to significantly accelerate electronic test workflows and product introductions.
“The digital transformation happening today in engineering enterprises relies on accelerating time-to-market using best in class software and hardware,” said Jay Alexander, chief technology officer at Keysight Technologies. “Keysight's PathWave Test 2020 software suite reflects our commitment to creating powerful software solutions that help our customers streamline their workflows.”
At the core of the PathWave Test 2020 software suite is PathWave Desktop Edition, providing users with access to the platform for launching and managing applications in the design and test ecosystem.
PathWave Desktop Edition enables engineers to:
- Manage instrument discovery and installed design and test software
- Share data with a common user experience across all design and test software
- Accelerate development and deployment of solutions
- Improve insights leveraging powerful new analytics and best-in-class measurement science
Keysight’s PathWave software platform, which runs on both Windows and Linux, provides customers with flexible and immediate access to the design and test tools they need, when they need them. The interoperability of the design and test tools and advanced data management significantly speeds the product development cycle, eliminating the need to re-create individual measurements and test plans at each discrete stage of the process.
Today, Keysight is announcing PathWave Test 2020 which includes PathWave Desktop Edition and PathWave Test Automation which leverages the OpenTAP open source test sequencer. For design verification, validation, and test engineers under extreme deadline pressures, the PathWave Test 2020 suite supports more efficient test flows including shared data and analysis for making faster, more informed decisions.
In June 2019, Keysight launched PathWave Design 2020, which includes the latest releases of Keysight’s electronic design automation software to accelerate design workflows for radio frequency (RF) and microwave, 5G, and automotive design engineers. The PathWave Design 2020 software suite includes new releases of flagship products: PathWave Advanced Design System (ADS) 2020, PathWave RFIC Design (GoldenGate) 2020, PathWave System Design (SystemVue) 2020, and PathWave RF Synthesis (Genesys) 2020.
In January 2019, Keysight announced PathWave Memory Designer, a new double data rate (DDR) memory simulation capability that is part of PathWave Advanced Design System (ADS) 2019. The new capability makes it easy for developers to compare simulated data with actual measured results, reducing the time required to complete product development workflows.
