Embed/Comm Simulation Software


Embed/Comm is a Windows® program for system level modeling and simulation of end-to-end communication systems at the physical layer.
It provides fast and accurate solutions for analog, digital and mixed-mode communication system designs.

Embed/Comm includes an extensive library of modulators, FEC blocks, channel models, filters, PLLs, and distortion-true RF blocks.
Visualization features include spectrum plots, eye diagrams, phase scatter plots, BER curves, and more...

Engineers at leading comm equipment manufacturers are using Embed/Comm to decrease design cycle time, minimize hardware prototyping, and build better products.

Rapid Prototyping
Users of Embed/Comm can quickly model end-to-end communication systems at the physical layer for rapid prototyping or academic purposes.

Hierarchical Design
Individual blocks can be easily grouped into compound blocks that represent subsystems, resulting in enhanced diagram organization.

Embedded Blocks
Design teams can now collaborate on complex models by linking sub-systems in a master diagram to multiple external Embed/Comm files.

Faster Design Cycles
Embed/Comm helps engineers decrease the design cycle time, reduce hardware prototyping and build better products.

Signal Visualization
A variety of output plot options allows immediate visualization of simulation results and intermediate signals at any stage of the comm system chain:

  • Time Domain Plots  &  Spectrum Plots
  • •Eye Diagrams  &  Phase Scatter Plots
  • •Filter Response Viewer
  • ••BER Curves

Distortion True RF Blocks
Embed/Comm simulates non-linear distortion in amplifiers and other RF blocks, including IP2, IP3, and 1 dB compression effects.

Complex Envelope
Embed/Comm supports lowpass equivalent models, providing users with the means to significantly reduce the computation load required to perform most comm simulation tasks.

User Blocks
A DLL Wizard lets users easily expand the block set by writing custom functions in C.
