Anritsu’s Signal Analyzer and AWR’s Visual System Simulator Communications Design Software Are Now Connected
EL SEGUNDO, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — November 28, 2011 — AWR Corporation, the innovation leader in high-frequency EDA software, and Anritsu Corporation, a global provider of test and measurement solutions, announce the expansion of AWR Connected for Anritsu. The initial AWR Connected for Anritsu offering consisted of AWR’s Microwave Office software and Anritsu’s VectorStar vector signal network analyzers and was announced in January 2009; however today’s news expands this to team Anritsu’s MS269xA/MS2830A Signal Analyzer series and MS269xA-002/MS2830A-02x Vector Signal Generator Option (SA/VSG) hardware with AWR’s Visual System Simulator (VSS) communications system design software.
AWR’s VSS software is a block-diagram based system simulator targeted at radar and communications system design. Combining simulation software and measurements with measurement instrumentation from Anritsu benefits communication systems designers such that complex, digitally modulated test signals (LTE, WiMAX, GSM/Edge) used to drive end hardware tests via Anritsu’s SA/VSG can now be assured that they are the same as those used throughout the design cycle within the VSS software. Additionally, AWR Connected for Anritsu SA/VSG provides a comprehensive solution of simulation software and measurement instruments that address component design through to end-to-end communication systems and gives designers a competitive edge by reducing cost and time to market.
AWR Connected for Anritsu’s SA/VSG hardware will be demonstrated at MWE2011 the week of November 30th in booth B101. Commercial availability follows.
Anritsu’s measurement instrument business provides products and services indispensable to the development, manufacture and maintenance of a range of communication systems as typified in mobile phones and the Internet on a global scale. Additionally, Anritsu’s technologies incorporate a range of products in other fields, such as IP network equipment, inspection equipment, and precision measuring instruments for electronic component. For 110 years, the Anritsu foundation "Measuring Technologies," continues to contribute to the realization of a safe, secure and comfortable society. Learn more: www.anritsu.com/ja-jp/
