AWR Corp. announces its European phase of its ADF 2012 tour. ADF is an open event for designers of microwave and RF circuits and systems such as MMIC, RFIC, RF PCB, modules, and communication systems to come together to learn about AWR's latest products and technologies and how they can help solve today's and tomorrow's design problems.

Confirmed European locations and dates presently include:

  • Eindhoven, The Netherlands – September 19
  • Horsholm, Denmark - October 4  (in conjunction with NI Days)
  • Madrid, Spain - October 4
  • Stockholm, Sweden - October 10
