Design, test software platform integrates simulation, design, test workflows
Believed to be the industry’s first software platform that integrates design, test, measurement and analysis, PathWave enables customers to accelerate innovation and product development from concept through manufacturing and deployment, says Keysight Technologies.
The software platform provides customers with flexible and immediate access to the design and test tools when they need them, explains Keysight. 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.
Keysights will show PathWave at DesignCon 2018. The open, scalable, and predictive software platform integrates hardware and software at every stage in the product development workflow. It combines design software, instrument control, and application-specific test software in an open development environment to accelerate the development cycle.
PathWave provides open APIs which allow for simplified and rapid customisation, says Keysight and quickly connects compatible hardware to speed test workflows.
For scalability it offers computing power that scales to meet varying workloads, by operating locally, in the cloud, or both. It processes test data across the workflow, locally or in the cloud and saves transition time between development phases in the design and test workflow.
Analytics tools provide faster troubleshooting, says Keysight. For example, it delivers comprehensive data analytics to identify trends and troubleshoot issues, monitors the use and health of each test resource for improved productivity and scheduling and captures and analyses big data for faster, more effective workflow processes
PathWave’s set of integrated software products are connected, interoperable, and reconfigurable, enabling users to allocate the appropriate computing resources where and when needed, evaluate collected data to optimise workflow, ensure new hardware and software works with existing hardware to maximise ROI, predict bottlenecks and make corrections to ensure efficient workflow process.
Keysight will demonstrate PathWave at DesignCon (31 January to 1 February 2018) Booth 725.
