AWR Press Release - December 9, 2009

AWR’s Microwave Office® Enables Creowave to Design Precision Filters Accurately in a Single Design Cycle Click to visit the Applied Wave Research websiteCreowave 2110-2170 MHz bandstop filter modeled in Microwave OfficeEl Segundo, CA — Dec. 9, 2009 — The Story: Microwave Office high-frequency design software is allowing Creowave (Oulunsalo, Finland) to more rapidly and accurately design the precision duplexers, and bandpass, bandstop, and highpass filters used in its telecommunications test systems. First-time design success is critical to the company because its products have a very narrow time-to-market window, leaving no room for software training or multiple iterations. The technologies within Microwave Office software enabled Creowave to successfully design custom filters to exacting specifications in a single design cycle.

“We chose Microwave Office because it is easy to learn, easy to use, fast, and delivers precise results,” said Jyrkl Koski, Creowave managing director. “With Microwave Office it is possible to just start working without investing precious time in several weeks of training. For Creowave it is extremely important to succeed on the first round because our filters have to be on the market fast. We believe that is not possible with any other tools besides those from AWR.”
