A Plethora of Ports: Making Sense of the Different Types of Ports in EM Planar Simulators

April 29, 2010 - This new white paper from AWR® provides a fundamental understanding of ports so that designers can select them properly in the process of circuit simulation. It traces the evolution of ports in EM simulation and examines all aspects of how they can be employed to make design simulation practical.

Budgeting Harmonics for ZigBee Front End Modules

The growth of low power, cost effective wireless systems is driving more applications to use ZigBee protocol. While for some of them, the signal needs to propagate over a short range, when covering a large building or operating outdoor over a wide range for example, the system may benefit from transmitting more power.

X-parameters® and Beyond, AWR’s Support of PHD and Nonlinear Behavioral Models

This white paper provides comprehensive information about rapidly-emerging nonlinear models and measurement systems and how AWR’s Microwave Office® high-frequency design software effectively employs them.

Analysis of Nonlinear Active Devices Incl True Balanced Differential Measurements

With continued pressure for increased 3G coverage for smart phones, increased Internet connection for Wi-Fi and WiMAX, and the imminent introduction of 4G/LTE systems, design activity for digital communication RF components has never been greater. At the forefront of the design activity is the development of power amplifiers (PA).
