Analog Devices Inc. (ADI) announced the availability of its latest version of its free, downloadable ADIsimSRD™ Design Studio for the development of short-range wireless devices. ADIsimSRD Design Studio Version 1.1 conducts real-time simulations, tests configurations and troubleshoots potential problems in short-range radio communications systems using ADI’s ADF70xx family of short-range transmitters and transceivers. The latest version adds support for ADI’s newest transceivers and transmitters, including the ADF7021-N, and for the new ARIB T96 Japanese band (950 to 956 MHz). It also features a new power consumption model to calculate battery life and improve the energy efficiency of a design. ADIsimSRD Design Studio enables rapid prototype development and design optimization, eliminating the use of many spreadsheets and iterative design work, which helps designers get their short-range systems to market faster.
