An updated V13.02 of NI AWR Design Environment has been released that contains many useful upgrades and enhancements to Microwave Office and Analog Office circuit design software, Visual System Simulator™ (VSS) system design software and AXIEM and Analyst™ 3D electromagnetic (EM) simulators. This latest release continues to address design challenges associated with highly-integrated RF and microwave components (power amplifiers, filters and more) commonly found in communications and radar systems.

Select V13.02 enhancements include:

  • Microwave Office Load Pull: A new script improves the handling of projects with large numbers of load-pull measurements. 
  • AXIEM EM Technology: Improved iterative solver passivity as well as improved AXIEM DC convergence of the multiple RHS solver Improved solver speed and memory performance.
  • Remote Computing: Improved file transfer speed between local and remote machines.
  • User Environment: Dozens of user-productivity enhancements related to NI AWR Design Environment job scheduler, user environment, measurements and interchange file format (IFF)/printed circuit board (PCB) wizards.
