AWR Corp., in collaboration with its customer Jose Luis Flores, has added two new application notes to its technical papers library. These application notes introduce a technique known as auxiliary generator (AG) for nonlinear circuit analysis. AG is useful for broadening the set of solutions that can be reproduced from a harmonic-balance analysis and can help study their stability properties in order to optimize a nonlinear circuit for a desired response.
“At a Glance” Brochures
Empower RF Systems continues to add to its selection of continuously updated and downloadable “At a Glance” brochures which detail (in separate editions) an overview of the company, recommended products for key markets and new product introductions as they occur. Twelve different documents, organized and consistent in presentation of key information, can be accessed via the website. The “At a Glance” materials are especially useful for engineers, buyers and sales reps.
