2009 ADS Users' Group Meeting

ADS User Group Meeting

Agilent EEsof EDA enables design successes through the integration of unique simulation technologies and its intuitive High Frequency and High Speed Digital co-design platform Advanced Design System (ADS). The 2009 ADS users’ group meeting was an opportunity for designers to share best practices and learn about the latest advancements. If you were unable attend these meetings live, this web page is an opportunity for you to discover what was presented and download the user presentations, and technical application notes.
