AWR iFilter™ Software Streamlines Synthesis
of Lumped-Element and Distributed Filters
El SEGUNDO, CA —
May 10, 2010 — AWR Corporation, the innovation leader in high-frequency electronic design automation (EDA),
announced today its new iFilter technology, which was developed specifically for synthesis of lumped-element and
distributed filters. iFilter's intuitive user interface enables users to quickly and easily design filters,
connect them directly to circuitry, and make optimization trade-offs that positively impact their designs. It
operates seamlessly within AWR’s Microwave Office® high-frequency design software, allowing filter designs and
their evolution to be part of the entire circuit design project.
iFilter’s physical layouts are automatically generated for distributed filters, while lumped-element filters
can be realized using an extensive library of manufacturers’ components (inductors, capacitors, etc). Designers
can view representations of the filter before it is exported to Microwave Office software. Switching from an
annotated schematic view to a physical view or netlists with parametric information provides insight into the
filter’s impedances and resonances.
iFilter software also provides feedback on higher-order modes and line
widths for common characteristic impedances, and warns the user if the desired characteristics of the filter are
beyond the capabilities of a specific topology. iFilter also performs accurate synthesis through electromagnetic
verification with AWR’s
AXIEM™ 3D planar EM simulator, which is especially important when designing distributed filters.

iFilter is an optional module for Microwave Office software and is available for either
lumped-element filter only or for distributed and lumped-element filter synthesis with the 2010 release of AWR
AWR, the innovation leader in high-frequency EDA software, dramatically reduces
development time and cost for products employed in wireless, high-speed wired, broadband, aerospace and defense,
and electro-optical applications. For more information, visit

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling
2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas
and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer.
The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available
in the form of WYSIWYG
