The live demos of this technology were a big hit at DesignCon and NVIDIA CUDA Day. Amolak was even featured on the NBC News in the Bay Area. You have to see this live to believe it! Sign up for my blog RSS feed and/or newsletter to hear about future live demos.
Thanks to everyone who attended the live event. You can register for an on-demand viewing here:
To get 3D Vision Stereoscopic Viewer you’ll need:
- ADS 2009 Update 1 with Layout plus Momentum G2 Element and/or Agilent FEM Elements. Or any ADS bundle that contains these elements.
- A no-charge stereoscopic viewer hotfix. If the compliant video card and hotfix are both installed correctly, there will be a new submenu under the 3D Viewer Options menu called Viewing Mode. Select Stereo Mode to enable stereoscopic viewing. (If the hotfix is installed, but the video card is either not set up properly or not present you’ll just see Projection Mode. This means you must install a compliant video card or reinstall the one you have.)
- Three pieces of hardware on your Windows XP or Vista PC:
- 120 Hz refresh rate 3D Vision compatible display Starting at ~$200 USD, depending on size
- NVIDIA 3D Vision Glasses First pair plus IR left-right phase transmitter~$200 USD, additional pairs without IR transmitter ~$150 USD. Or NVIDIA sells a display/glasses/base package for ~$600 USD
- An NVIDIA GPU graphics card that supports 3D Vision. Click the link for a complete list. See table below for recommended ones.
|Card||Typical US Pricing||GPU cores||Memory|
|Quadro FX 3800||$800||192||1024 MiB|
|Quadro FX 4800||$1,600||192||1536 MiB|
|Quadro FX 5800||$3,200||240||4096 MiB|
Note 1: The Quadro FX 5800 can also be used as a compute engine in conjunction with our W2405 Agilent FDTD Simulator Element.
Note 2: NVIDIA specs and prices are subject to change.
Free webcast: In collaboration with NVIDIA, Agilent engineers have combined signal integrity EDA tools with NVIDIA 3D Vision stereoscopic technology to produce insights needed to design the next generation of graphics processing units (GPUs).
In this webcast you’ll learn how you too can benefit from this virtuous circle of better hardware helping EDA tools run better, and better EDA tools helping design even better hardware. We’ll show you how NVIDIA benefits from massively parallel EM and circuit simulation by running Advanced Design System on PCs with NVIDIA Tesla or Quadro Professional GPUs, and how 3D visualization of EM fields gives better insight – literally – into EMC/EMI issues.
