EL SEGUNDO, Calif. – Oct. 12, 2015 -- NI (formerly AWR Corporation) announces that Dr. C. J. (Keith) Kikkert, professor at James Cook University in Queensland, Australia, has adopted NI AWR Design Environment™ as the RF/microwave software of choice for his electrical and electronic engineering classes. His challenge was for his students to be able to understand and explore all design options without getting so bogged down in trying to learn the software that it was difficult to achieve a positive design learning experience.
“My students have found NI AWR software to be significantly easier to get their head around because it has a lot less steep learning curve,” said Professor Kikkert. “As a result, I started using AWR more and more during my RF electronics teaching and research and ultimately decided to share my work, embodied in my RF electronic design textbook, as an electronic textbook downloadable free of charge to universities and students worldwide.”

The latest edition of Prof. Kikkert’s RF Electronics: Design and Simulation e-book is available at: awrcorp.com/professors-in-partnership/professor-keith-kikkert/rf-electronics-design-and-simulation (registration required).
