There is a lot to see and discuss with AWR at IMS 2010 in Booth 1318. Preview the new features coming in the 2010 release of Microwave Office®, AXIEM™, Visual System Simulator™ and Analog Office® design suites. Demos will include new technologies such as iFilter™ lumped and distributed filter synthesis software, antenna analysis and visualization in AXIEM 3D planar EM software, and support for nonlinear behavioral models from many of the test equipment manufacturers exhibiting at the symposium. More information on all of AWR’s many activities at IMS 2010 is available at

AWR and its partners will be presenting their technologies in action at the MicroApps theatre. Topics include multichip module design, nonlinear co-simulation with real-time channel measurements for PCB signal integrity, system-level component models for RF EDA, multi-rate harmonic balance for nonlinear simulation, power amplifier design including load pull analysis, using iFilter to synthesize lumped and distributed filters, the migration of test and measurement toward integrate simulation. In addition, AWR industry pundit Steve Maas will present a paper during the technical session on Wednesday, May 26 at 3:50 pm entitled "Historical Trends and Evolution of Circuit Simulation Technology."
