Middle East Technical University Student Designs 35 GHz Phase Shifter Using NI AWR Design Environment


EL SEGUNDO, CA, Mar 3, 2015 -- NI (formerly AWR Corporation) announces that a student at Middle East Technical University (METU), located in Turkey, used NI AWR software to successfully design a true-time-delay phase shifter with center frequency at 35 GHz by means of microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) technology.

The circuit components were initially designed in ANSYS HFSS and then the simulation results were imported into NI AWR Design Environment™ Microwave Office circuit design software, enabling the designer to fine tune the values of the circuit model of the components for best performance. The designer chose NI AWR software because of its simulation speed and capacity, which helped him overcome the challenges of long simulation times and meshing problems due to the large structure.

“NI AWR Design Environment compatibility with other simulation tools and its easy-to-use optimization capability combined with fast simulation speed were valuable features during the design process of the phase shifter,” said Enis Kobal, research and teaching assistant at METU.
