Agilent has software mostly useful for the simulation of radio-frequency and microwave circuits, essentially with discrete devices. It has a powerful electromagnetic simulator, which is suitable for instance in the layout of microstrip circuits. It is however possible to use the powerful harmonic-balance simulators from Agilent together with Cadence, e.g. GoldenGate with ADE.
