AWR introduced 2010 Microwave Office (MWO) design suite for microwave design. The latest release increases productivity for high-frequency monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC), MIC, RF printed circuit board (PCB) and module designers. New features include support for nonlinear behavioral modeling, improved speed in AWR’s multi-rate harmonic balance (MRHB) technology for the design of complex circuits, iFilter synthesis for lumped and distributed filters, and AWR Connected for Cadence Allegro for import of Cadence PCB layouts into MWO for further analysis and electromagnetic simulation.
AWR introduced their iFilter technology for synthesis of lumped-element and distributed filters. The module plugs directly into the Microwave Office design environment and is integrated as a wizard within the AWR Design Environment (AWRDE). iFilter is an optional module for Microwave Office software and is available for either lumped-element filter only or for distributed and lumped-element filter synthesis with the 2010 release of AWR Design Environment.
AWR announced training sessions about electromagnetic (EM) simulation, Microwave Office high-frequency design software, and new technologies for EM simulation. The electromagnetic (EM) simulation training class will take place May 18-19, the Microwave Office class will take place June 8-10, and the EM simulation online training session is available now.
