ADS has no demo - RF Cafe Forums
Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.
Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

Unfortunately, and for what ever reason, ADS does not offer a deomo like Ansoft, Eagleware, and Microwave office. Ansoft has a fairly robust student version which you can download for free. Microwave office and Eagleware offer 30 day trials for their full version software. ADS "may" bring in a copy for you to evaluate, but unless your a potential customer or you are already with a company in which Agilent wants to get there foot in the door, it is doubtful.

Well with all the respect to all of the software tools you mentioned, you can't compare the performance of ADS to those. Therefore, Agilent keeps themselves the "right" of not distributing a demo to customers, as they are and were prominent in the EDA domain

You are quite right about the dominance of ADS.
