µWave Wizard 8.1
Mician introduces version 8.1 of their hybrid full-wave EM-software tool, µWave Wizard. This release adds radiating boundary conditions to their 3D FEM solver, enabling the simulation of antennas with arbitrary shape and material distribution, like slotted waveguide and dielectric resonator antennas. Outer geometries of waveguide horn antennas can be modeled exactly. The new version allows the simulation of single and dual offset reflector antennas using real feed data, including tracking mode support. It includes a graphical design tool for standard reflectors and allows shaping with user supplied analytical functions.
The Modelithics® COMPLETE Library™ v17.1
The latest release of the Modelithics COMPLETE Library for NI AWR Design Environment, version 17.1, contains 44 new models and introduces several new model features. New advanced scalable simulation models for RF and microwave components from 20 different vendors have been added to the v17.1 release. It is compatible with the latest v13 release of NI AWR Design Environment, specifically Microwave Office circuit design software, and includes multiple new features that add even more flexibility and control while using the models in Microwave Office designs.
