AWR Design Environment (AWRDE™) Version 9.01 Delivers Key New Features to Enhance Productivity
SEGUNDO, CA — January 26, 2010 —
Story: AWR, the innovation leader in high-frequency electronic design automation (EDA), today announced
that Version 9.01 of the AWRDE is now available for download from
www.awrcorp.com. This new release delivers more than 100 enhancements that increase productivity, including
key new features to AWR’s APLAC® harmonic balance engine, AXIEM™ 3D planar electromagnetic (EM) simulator, and new
AWRDE Version 9.01 adds a new harmonic balance mode to the APLAC simulator that increases
simulation speed for microwave nonlinear circuits, especially when there are an equal number of linear and
nonlinear models or more linear than nonlinear models. In addition, AXIEM now supports series ports, which enables
designers to use the software to design two-port chip components.
New or enhanced elements include the addition of an XdB compression point control block that lets designers plot
all nonlinear measurements from a given schematic at “X” dB into gain compression, and an arbitrary,
user-specified bit sequence (V_ARBS) and pseudo-random bit sequence (V-PRBS) that are additional voltage sources
available to the user.
The complete list of new features and enhancements in AWRDE v. 9.01 is available
from AWR’s download site at
under the “Documentation” tab or from the Help menu of the installed software. Users can also click on any
