EL SEGUNDO, CA – June 28, 2010 – AWR Corporation, the innovation leader in high-frequency EDA, announced today that antenna analysis is now available in the 2010 release of its AXIEM™ 3D planar electromagnetic (EM) simulation software. AXIEM 2010 includes new features and capabilities that are ideal for large, planar, antenna designs such as arrays with many elements. Critical design problems, such as scan blindness, can now be discovered and corrected. Post-processing such as antenna patterns for linear, circular, and elliptical polarizations, etc., numerous antenna measurements (including gain), as well as current visualization/animations, are now part of the 2010 release.

Key features of AXIEM 2010:
• Seamless integration with Microwave Office® and Analog Office® software
• Proprietary full-wave planar EM solver technology
    • Open-boundary method-of-moments (MoM) approach
    • Unconstrained capacity exhibited by NLn(N) solver scaling (N is # of unknowns)
    • Unconstrained line width versus thickness ratio
    • Robust results from DC to daylight
• Advanced hybrid meshing technology
    • Mixed element meshing of triangles and rectangles
    • Geometrically-aware and optimized
    • True thick metal support
• Antenna analysis and post-processing
    • Antenna measurements, including gain
    • Patterns for linear, circular, and elliptical polarizations
    • Current visualization
• Numerous source/excitations including auto-calibrated internal ports
• Parametric studies, optimization, and tuning
• 3D visualization and animation
