AWR Corp., the innovation leader in high-frequency electronic design automation (EDA), announces that NXP Semiconductor's ultra-wideband (UWB) Doherty reference design is now AWR Microwave Office design environment ready. The updated release features NXP’s BLF884P and BLF884PS transistors for ultra-wideband Doherty power amplifiers operating from 470 to 806 MHzand a 70 W DVB-T UWB LDMOS reference design using NXP’s patent-pending architecture capable of operating over an ultra-wideband spectrum in the UHF broadcast spectrum.
AWR Corp., the innovation leader in high-frequency electronic design automation (EDA), and AMPSA, supplier of RF and microwave amplifier design software, announce AWR Connected™ for AMPSA, a synthesis-through-simulation design flow specifically developed to improve design throughput and productivity for amplifier designers.
AWR Corp., the innovation leader in high-frequency EDA software, announces that a full slate of activities will be offering during EuMW 2013. Select software demonstrations to MicroApps to an EU User Group Meeting as well as a PA design lunch and learn with Cree and a Customer Appreciation happy hour with National Instruments are all in the works.
AWR Corp., the innovation leader in high-frequency EDA software, announces that for a limited time the company will offer a free eBook download of Chapter 18, “Wideband Amplifiers,” from the new second edition of engineering professor Michael Steer’s textbook, Microwave & RF Design: A Systems Approach. The eBook excerpt download also contains embedded video tutorials of Professor Steer demonstrating key principles of design as they pertain to the wideband amplifier case study contained within its pages.
A new white paper from AWR, “RF/Microwave EDA Software Design Flow Considerations for PA MMIC Design,” examines a gallium arsenide (GaAs) pseudomorphic high electron mobility transistor (PHEMT) power amplifier (PA) design approach from a systems perspective.
AWR Corp. gifted its software to the winners of the High Efficiency Power Amplifier (HEPA) and Software Defined Radio (SDR) Student Design Contests offered at the IMS 2013. The gifts are part of the AWR University Program, which encourages students to become involved in the dynamic profession of microwave and RF engineering and to apply their knowledge to practical designs using the highly efficient AWR design methodology.
AWR Corp. announces that its customer, Marki Microwave has leveraged its high-frequency design software platform to develop a new design and manufacturing flow for successful mixer design. The revolutionary new mixer design flow combines AWR’s Microwave Office® circuit design software and Marki’s patent-pending Microlithic™ mixer manufacturing process, resulting in a 14x reduction in the size of Marki’s mixers and a 5x reduction in design time with the same industry-leading quality and performance as the former handcrafted devices.
AWR announces the dates and venues for its AWR Design Forum 2013 (ADF2013) events in China and Taiwan that take place in early September. The AWR Design Forum is an open event at which designers of microwave and RF circuits and systems can network, share useful information, and collaborate on industry issues and trends.
AWR application note describes the design of a high performance ETSI E-Band circuit for mm-wave wireless system
A new application note from AWR highlights the use of AWR’s Microwave Office® circuit design software to develop a Q- to E-Band doubler and a K- to E-Band quadrupler circuit (including a medium E-Band power amplifier) for millimeter-wave wireless systems. The design effort resulted in an increase in gain as well as output power, two critical criteria for E-Band systems.
ALCIOM, a consulting and design company specializing in innovative mixed-signal projects, used AWR’s Visual System Simulator™ (VSS) system design software and Microwave Office® circuit design software to develop a wideband RF downconverter subsystem for a custom measurement instrument with strict instrumentation-grade specifications.
