To access VISION, please or contact us for more information or a free trial.


VISION is an advanced RF circuit and system modeling solution for accurate RF & MW system design. Building RF systems which are designed to operate with wideband modulated signals, like 5G and RADAR, or with a large number of circuits, like active antennas, is challenging. Looking at the simulation accuracy, the bottleneck is always the model quality used by the simulators. VSION offers an unique platform to provide accurate behavioral models for system simulations.


Key features

  • Turn-key circuit and system level modeling environment.
  • Measurement Benches control for model extraction and validation.
  • Device modeler toolbox for active and passive circuits (LNAs, HPAs, Filters, Mixers...)
  • System Level Macro-Modeling solutions and direct export functionalities to the main commercial system simulators.

Burn-in and life test solutions

AMCAD Engineering and its strategic partner, ITEST offer a highly integrated and cost effective solution for component Burn-IN and Life Test solutions. Different Pulse DC & RF conditions are enabled.


The pulse sequence is fully programmable using a time resolution of 20ns. Drain and Gate bias are monitored synchronously for voltage and current measurement every seconds. Power sensors monitor the power at different stages of the system.


Data are directly stored in the memory of the chassis and can be downloaded on demand.
