About NI AWR Software
The NI AWR Design Environment software portfolio includes RF/microwave electronic design automation (EDA) tools such as Visual System Simulator for system design, Microwave Office/Analog Office for microwave/RF circuit design, and AXIEM and AnalystTM for electromagnetic analysis. We accelerate the design and product development cycle of high-frequency ICs and systems found within the aerospace/defense, semiconductor, computer, consumer electronics, and telecommunications markets by reducing the time it takes from concept thru to manufacturing. The NI AWR software advantage is simple:
· An intuitive use model that delivers an exceptional user experience
· An open design flow that supports 3rd party tools resulting in more compelling solutions
Combined, these unique aspects of NI AWR software solutions maximize user productivity – eliminating errors and design redundancies – quickening the pace to market.
extraction technology dramatically reduces from hours to seconds
the time required to do the initial modeling of complex interconnects.
The new technology enables designers to perform interconnect modeling
at the earliest stages of the design flow, where problems can be
identified and corrected before costly and time-consuming redesigns are
The Analog Office design suite is a modern and complete design system
that is specifically architected and optimized from the ground up for
analog and radio-frequency integrated circuit (RFIC) designs. Analog
Office software leverages AWR's unique unified data model to provide
designers with a concurrent, interconnect-driven and RF-aware design
methodology for RFIC and module design.
As clock rates, operating frequencies, and component density
increase, it's essential you have the ability to concurrently design
RF/microwave circuits and realize them on a printed circuit board (PCB)
that is design-rule-checked and manufacturable. AWR Connected for Mentor Graphics Expedition is just such a
AWR has launched a new website AWR TV™! We tailored AWR TV to be a
comprehensive "one-stop" resource for product information, tutorial
presentations, and application-specific discussions. The site
contains more than 50 videos with topics ranging from AXIEM's hybrid
meshing to Visual System Simulator™'s WiMAX applications and
engineering insights for designing microwave integrated circuits
(MICs), monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMICs), and printed
circuit boards (PCBs) within Microwave Office® software.
Nonlinear behavioral modeling support for Agilent's X-parameters®, Mesuro's Cardiff model, and more. Significant improvements to the tuner including a user defined step and max and min values that are remembered. Linear stability analysis including normalized determinant function and stability envelope measurement. Connectivity tracer for identifying nets and locating short or open circuits visually.
TestWave software integrates test and measurement (T&M)
equipment with simulation software for communication systems and radio
frequency (RF)/microwave circuits. Together with the Microwave Office®
and Visual System Simulator™ (VSS) simulation software, TestWave
provides wireless system and RF/microwave circuit designers a complete
integration of the design process, combining schematic simulation, test
signal generation, and test and measurement verification.
