Visual System Simulator

Wireless Communication Systems Design

Visual System Simulator™ (VSS) is a complete software suite for today’s complex communication systems that enables engineers to design the right system architecture and formulate suitable specifications for each of the underlying components.

VSS is built upon a Unified Data Model™ architecture (as is Microwave Office®) and therefore provides for seamless system and circuit level co-simulation.

VSS Capabilities & Applications


  • Development of component specifications
  • Algorithm development
  • Creation of modulated signals
  • Co-simulation with circuit tools
  • End-to-end simulations
  • Predicting wireless conformance tests
  • Hardware-in-the-loop simulations


  • Wireless communication systems such as:
    • LTE 
    • DVB-H/DVB-T
    • WiMAX/ 802.16d-2004/802.16e-2005 (mobile and fixed)
    • CDMA2000
    • GSM/EDGE
    • WLAN/802.11a/b/g and 802.11ac (IP sharing with LabVIEW)
    • 3G WCDMA FDD
    • IS95
  • Proprietary wired/wireless communication systems
  • Radar systems
  • EW, ECM, ESM and other RF and microwave systems
