AWR and CST Cooperate to Integrate 3D EM Software into Microwave Office Design Suite; Technology-Leading CST MICROWAVE STUDIO Will Now Be Available to AWR's Rapidly Expanding Base of High-Frequency Design Customers

EL SEGUNDO, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—June 5, 2006— Applied Wave Research, Inc. (AWR(R)), a leading provider of high-frequency electronic design automation (EDA) tools, today announced that AWR and Computer Simulation Technology (CST), Darmstadt, Germany, are cooperating to integrate CST MICROWAVE STUDIO(R) 2006, the technology-leading three-dimensional (3D) electromagnetic (EM) technology, with AWR's Microwave Office(R) circuit design software suite. The cooperation is part of AWR's ongoing open systems strategy and leadership position in providing best-in-class EM tools for radio-frequency (RF) and microwave design.

"CST's innovative technology is used by market leaders worldwide and will be a valuable option for designers using our Microwave Office software," said James Spoto, AWR president and CEO. "Through the interface, our customers now have access to a specialist tool for the fast and accurate 3D EM simulation to solve high frequency design issues."

"Customer demand for such an interface has increased significantly over the last couple of months," said Dr. Martin Timm, product marketing manager of CST. "The integrated solution will help our joint customers create better designs faster. We are pleased that we will be able to provide a solution in a relatively short period of time thanks to both tools' open architecture."

Pricing and Availability

The AWR/CST interface will be available without additional charge for all customers using CST MICROWAVE STUDIO(R) 2006B and Microwave Office 2006 software. The interface will be demonstrated at the MTT-S show in San Francisco at AWR booth 1629. Production release of the interface is expected to be in Q3 2006.
