Media Alert: Texas Tech University and AWR Release Two New Success Stories: Smart Radar for Cancer Tumor Tracking and Revitalization of Microwave Engineering Curriculum

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. – Nov. 14, 2013

What: AWR Corporation in partnership with parent company National Instruments teamed with TexasTech University to supply Microwave Office® RF/microwave software for use in a cancerresearch project that resulted in the invention of the revolutionary Smart Radar for noninvasivelytracking tumors during radiation therapy.

“The combination of AWR software, LabVIEW, and PXI proved to be a key element in thesuccessful development of our Smart Radar technology, said Changhzi Li, associate professorat Texas Tech University. “It was also a good package to revitalize traditional RF/microwaveengineering courses at Texas Tech. The ease of use of the tools offered a good way to explaincomplex design concepts in a highly interactive approach and student interest was greatlyboosted.”

As a result of the Smart Radar project, Professor Li was then able to take the lessons learnedfrom that effort and use them to enhance and revitalized interest and enrollment in theuniversity’s RF/microwave engineering program. Dr. Li shares that, “AWR and NI toolsillustrate complicated microwave theories with ease. The use of these tools within theclassroom inspired students from the beginning of the semester through to the final project.They gained theoretical knowledge but also valuable hands on experiences in design,fabrication, and characterization of microwave circuits.”

Where: Both success stories can be found on the AWR website:Smart Radar:

When: Immediately.
