V12 release of NI AWR Design Environment provides the most comprehensive, powerful, and easy-to-use suite of software design tools for the microwave and radio frequency (RF) communities. The NI AWR Design Environment integrates key technologies within a single environment - Microwave Office circuit design software is a complete suite of tools featuring state-of-the-art circuit simulators, layout creation, and electromagnetic (EM) simulation. Circuit simulation relies on the best-in-class APLAC frequency and time domain simulators, while EM simulation features AXIEM for planar simulations and Analyst&trade for full 3D finite element method problems. Visual System Simulator&trade (VSS) is a comprehensive RF system simulation tool, with several features geared toward RF communication and radar systems.
- NI AWR Design Environment focuses on three main principles for software development:
- Increased simulation performance in critical customer application areas
- Improving the designer&rsquos workflow in one intuitive, comprehensive user environment
- Supporting an open design flow that integrates best-in-class third party tools, enabling more compelling solutions
This software helps accelerate the design and product development cycle of high-frequency ICs, RF PCBs, and modules as well as communications and radar systems found within the aerospace/defense, semiconductor, computer, consumer electronics, and telecommunications markets.
