About PathWave

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 efficient test flows including shared data and analysis for making fast, 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) 2020PathWave RFIC Design (GoldenGate) 2020PathWave 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.
