Keysight Technologies, Inc., a leading technology company that delivers advanced design and validation solutions to help accelerate innovation to connect and secure the world, announced a new model generator (MG) environment that increases productivity for semiconductor device modeling engineers with improved automation across the entire workflow.

Semiconductor device modeling engineers require automated tools to create accurate simulation models and process design kits (PDK) for baseband and radio frequency (RF) integrated circuit (IC) designs that leverage both silicon (CMOS) and compound III-V technologies.

"Keysight’s device modeling 2023 software suite addresses the needs of customers who generate high-quality SPICE models in limited time. "This new solution offers workflow and speed improvements and represents a significant advancement toward delivering a flexible and open environment that integrates all Keysight modeling technologies."

Ma Long, manager of device modeling and characterization at Keysight Technologies

To address the growing needs of device modeling engineers, Keysight’s device modeling 2023 software suite includes:

  • PathWave Device Modeling (IC-CAP) 2023 features the MG, a new modeling flow manager that enables a one-click import of measured data, creation of trend plots, organization of the extraction flow, basic QA verification and documentation. IC-CAP also upgrades Radio Frequency Gallium Nitride (RF GaN) packages, a wide bandgap material that offers significant advantages in high-power RF applications, with support for the latest Compact Model Coalition (CMC) model versions including improved extraction flows that account for trapping and thermal effects.
  • PathWave Model Builder (MBP) 2023 introduces a new and exclusive link to Synopsys’ PrimeSim™ HSPICE®. This ultra-fast link enables optimization and tuning without any speed penalty and delivers access to HSPICE features such as CMC standard models and Verilog-A compiler for custom models.
  • PathWave Model QA (MQA) 2023 enhances the new project template-based workflow with various template examples including statistical, corner, table and RF.
  • Advanced Low-frequency Noise Analyzer (A-LFNA) 2023 delivers an integrated and compact measurement system through support of M9601A PXIe Precision Source/Measure Unit.

AppTek and expert.ai Announce Strategic Partnership

AppTek | September 27, 2022

AppTek and expert.ai announced today they have entered into a strategic technology partnership to bring AI-based text analytics to dynamic audio content in multiple languages. The partnership leverages AppTek's leadership in Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) and Neural Machine Translation (NMT) technologies with expert.ai's natural language understanding (NLU) capabilities to enable organizations to leverage audio content in the unstructured data sets that they manage for improving decision making and augmenting intelligent automation. As organizations increasingly utilize language data—emails, documents, reports and other free form text— for an ever-growing range of enterprise use cases (knowledge discovery, contract analysis, policy review, email management, text summarization, classification, entity extraction, etc.), natural language capabilities will play a critical role in powering any process or application that relies on unstructured language data. The combined capabilities of AppTek and expert.ai supercharge enterprise and government NLU and NLP (natural language processing) applications, expanding the data types and sources available for analysis to provide even more informational output. "This partnership brings the full stack Human Language Technology to the federal and commercial space in both Europe and the United States. As we cover multiple sources and types of information input together, we address the full scope of recognition, cognition, interpreting and analytics. "We look forward to implementing our joint vision." Michael Veronis, Chief Revenue Officer at AppTek Using AppTek's speech-to-text technology within the expert.ai Platform, organizations can automatically transcribe audio types from different sources, including high-quality media broadcast content, podcasts, meetings, one-to-one interviews or even low-bandwidth telephone conversations. In addition, they can leverage advanced multilingual functionalities to generate highly accurate, customizable and scalable translations across hundreds of language pairs. "The challenges posed by different languages and dialects along with the constraints of speech-to-text accuracy are causing organizations to miss out on the massively unexploited value of language data, especially audio content," said Colin Matthews, Chief Revenue Officer at expert.ai. "We are thrilled for this partnership, since AppTek technologies for automating speech recognition and machine translation complement our AI-powered natural language capabilities by harnessing the potential of dynamic multilanguage audio content within the expert.ai Platform."
