Downloading Your Keysight EEsof EDA Software


Downloading Keysight EEsof EDA software involves saving a file to a temporary directory and then following installation instructions to install the software.

To make downloading files more reliable, we offer the Akamai Download Manager. The download manager provides the ability to pause a download and then resume it at a later time or automatically recover from a dropped connection or system crash. It also improves download reliability for large downloads, especially on high latency or high packet-loss connections.

If you would rather not use the Akamai Download Manager, you can choose to use your browser's default download capabilities.

What To Expect

If your web browser is running on Windows, you will use version 3 of the Akamai Download Manager (DLM3) which requires the installation of the Akamai NetSession Interface the first time you choose to use it. The NetSesssion Interface software installs quickly and easily and after installation is accessible from the Windows Control Panel if you want to configure it or disable it for any reason.

If your browser is running on a non-Windows operating system and your browser supports Java, you will automatically use version 2 of the Akamai Download Manager (DLM2).

Both DLM2 and DLM3 require Javascript to be enabled in your browser.

In all situations, if the download manager is unable to run, or you choose not to use the Akamai Download Manager, your browser's download capabilities will be used instead.

The version of Akamai Download Manager used does not support Internet Explorer 11. Please use IE 11's default download capabilities instead.
