EL SEGUNDO, Calif. – April 22, 2015 -- NI (formerly AWR Corporation) announces that OneTree Microdevices, a fabless semiconductor company for emerging broadband networks, quickly and easily designs ultra-linear amplifiers while maintaining extremely high levels of linearity using NI AWR Design Environment™ software. High data rates today use orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing with high peak-to-average ratios, which places added pressure on active components for good bit-error-rate performance. At the same time customers demand reduced power consumption and lower cost. OneTree has been successful thanks to the extensive nonlinear design and optimization capabilities for broadband amplifiers within Microwave Office. In addition, the Microwave Office optimizer enables insights on underlying circuit behavior that might otherwise not be considered.
“We’ve found NI AWR software to bring a strong combination of integrated tools that help us get our projects done faster,” said Chris Day, chairman and CTO at OneTree. “It has extensive capabilities - but it’s also a quick learn and easy to use - so engineers can quickly get up to speed. We use it for most everything in our design process – from IC design and layout to PCB design and layout, and through to customer suitable documentation. Over the years we have also found support to be outstanding.’’
