Keysight Technologies launches PathWave platform to integrate simulation, design, test workflows

Keysight Technologies has launched what it says is the industry’s first software platform that integrates design, test, measurement and analysis. PathWave is an open, scalable, and predictive software platform that 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 allowing users to quickly create high-performance solutions. 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.

‘We all recognise the many societal benefits offered by technology, from cloud computing, big data, machine learning, and artificial intelligence, to augmented reality, and various types of mobile platforms, explained Jay Alexander, senior vice president and chief technology officer at Keysight Technologies. ‘But gaining the full value of these new technologies requires deep expertise across the whole design and test workflow, plus the measurement expertise to effectively implement them. Keysight is committed to continuously complementing emerging technologies with solutions that help our customers overcome barriers to innovation and establish efficient workflow processes.’
