ACS has recently released a new version of its LINC2 Pro RF and microwave design, synthesis and simulation software suite. Version 2.71 Release G adds variable parameter sweeps to the LINC2 simulation control toolset. Now swept variables can be assigned to equations or to circuit component parameters so that displayed circuit responses can be viewed against the variable sweep at any selected frequency. When swept variables are included on a schematic, the user can choose to plot circuit simulation output data as a function of any variable or as a traditional frequency sweep (frequency response) or both.
Circuits can be entered manually or created automatically by a number of circuit synthesis modules. The LINC2 Pro RF and microwave circuit design and analysis software suite combines circuit synthesis, simulation, optimization and statistical yield analysis into a single integrated design environment at an affordable cost.
