EL SEGUNDO, Calif. – May 18, 2015 – NI (formerly AWR Corporation) announces that AWR Connected™ for AMCAD will be on display at the International Microwave Symposium 2015 (IMS 2015), May 18 to 22, in Phoenix in NI Booth #2431. AWR Connected for AMCAD provides ready access between NI AWR Design Environment™ V12 software and AMCAD Engineering stability analysis (STAN) software.
Stability can be difficult to achieve in microwave circuits with gain (nonlinear behavior), such as amplifiers and oscillators. With the AWR Connected wizard that integrates STAN into NI AWR Design Environment, the tool can be called upon from within Microwave Office circuit design software to locate and characterize the unwanted oscillations in components such as power amplifiers (PAs). This aids RF/microwave engineers in developing networks that improve circuit stability without sacrificing the performance goals of the original circuit design.
“NI AWR Design Environment focuses on two major purposes for RF/microwave design—the ability to identify issues early in the design process before costly and time consuming implementation and easy access to best-in-class third-party tools,” said Sherry Hess, vice president of marketing for AWR Group, NI. “This latest AWR Connected for AMCAD flow provides users with yet another tool to help them improve their designs and achieve performance goals in a fast and efficient manner.”
