GoldenGate Product Structure

GoldenGate Product Configuration

GoldenGate provides a simple license structure, where the majority of its functionalities are covered by the GoldenGate Core Bundles.

On top of the GoldenGate Solo bundle, cost effective parallel license options either within a Quadpack for Power Users or with a pool of parallel licenses for larger design teams are provided.

For co-simulations with Ptolemy (W2361) / SystemVue (W1464) or with 3rd party digital simulators (W2304), additional licenses are required.

Momentum can be purchased as a single element or as part of an ADS bundle, where the later would directly offer access to ADS schematic entry, data display and layout.

The Combo Bundles that provide access to Agilent EEsof solutions without being locked into one environment are very attractive to users working in Virtuoso and ADS platforms.

GoldenGate Core Bundles

GoldenGate Solo is the baseline product providing one user one simulation per license. GoldenGate Quadpack, for Power Users, offers one user four simulations per license.

W2010BP/BT GoldenGate RFIC (Solo) Simulator GoldenGate Solo is the baseline product providing one user one simulation per license.
W2001BP/BT GoldenGate RFIC (Quad) Simulator GoldenGate Quadpack, for Power Users, offers one user four simulations per license.

GoldenGate Add-on Elements

GoldenGate offers cost-effective parallel licenses for running massive parallel simulations. It requires either a Solo or Quad license. The X-parameter Generation license for GoldenGate is the same as for Advanced Design System (ADS).

GoldenGate Add-on Elements
Model # Product Name Description
W2008EP/ET GoldenGate Parallel Simulation Option Provides multiple simulation licenses for larger regression jobs at an attractive price.
W2305EP/ET X-Parameter Generator Enables MMIC, RF-SIP and RF module design houses to build accurate, pre-prototype models of nonlinear devices (e.g. power amplifiers, front-end modules and transceivers).

GoldenGate Co-Simulation Elements and Bundles

GoldenGate allows co-simulation with the Ptolemy and SystemVue data flow engines, as well as third-party digital simulators, via the license in the following table.

GoldenGate Co-Simulation Elements
Model # Product Name Description
W2304EP/ET Verilog-AMS Element Enables the co-simulation of Verilog-AMS models with third party digital simulator such as Cadence NCSim or Mentor ModelSim.
W2361EP/ET Ptolemy Element for GoldenGate RF Simulator Enables the co-simulation of communication system comprising Digital Signal Processing (DSP), RF-mixed signal and baseband system with ADS-Ptolemy within the Cadence Virtuoso environment.
W1464BP/BT SystemVue RF System Architect Full RF-focused SystemVue bundle that enables the co-simulation with any SystemVue physical-layer design within the Cadence Virtuoso environment.

Note: Please refer to the ADS-Ptolemy and SystemVue product pages for details on numerous wireless libraries.

Momentum Elements and Bundles

Access to Momentum in Virtuoso is enabled through one of the licenses in the following table.
