Cover Sistemi relies on AWR software to design UWB receiver from concept to final production


April 16, 2014

Cover Sistemi, an Italian electronics developer, used AWR software to design an ultra-wideband (UWB) receiver from concept to final production in a single pass. Specifications were for a complete design starting from the antenna through to the entire RF/baseband analog chain down to the AD converter.

Cover Sistemi used Microwave Office® for the circuit design and AXIEM® for the electromagnetic (EM) simulation. The scope of work included all design phases, from high-level simulation to circuit-level design and final verification of pre-layout and post-layout.

“AWR was the backbone of our productivity. We were extremely satisfied with the quality of the models, fast simulation engines, and accurate simulation results. It is a complete tool that enables us to succeed from scratch to production designs and provides us with a superior platform for designing RF/ microwave products.”  Alessio Cacciatori, R&D - RF&MW Engineer, Cover Sistemi.
