Denmark-based Kamstrup A/S, a provider of metering solutions for electricity, heat, water and natural gas, has selected Agilent Technologies Inc.'s Advanced Design System (ADS) to develop RF circuits for future smart metering systems.

According to Agilent, ADS is electronic design automation software for RF, microwave and high-speed digital applications. The software provides schematic-entry and layout modules combined with system-level, circuit-level and electromagnetic simulators, the company adds.

"Smart metering systems and advanced metering infrastructure rely heavily on RF technology to minimize cost and improve efficiency," says Agilent's Joe Civello. "With its easy 'what if' analysis of alternatives and statistics-based manufacturing yield analysis and optimization, ADS plays a critical role in helping designers deliver top-quality RF circuit designs."
