AWR's MWO with ACE Dramatically Cuts Simulation Times for Multitest
EL SEGUNDO, CA – June 3, 2010 – The Story: Multitest, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of test
equipment for semiconductor integrated circuits (ICs), has been able to leverage the efficiency of AWR’s ACE™
automated circuit extraction technology within Microwave Office® software to simplify and streamline its printed
circuit board (PCB) simulations so that they are completed in significantly less time. Microwave Office enables
Multitest designers to readily create libraries for several different PCB stackups (various numbers of layers and
With the ACE technology invoked within AWR’s Microwave Office software, the designers are
able to successfully simulate any board desired while maintaining appropriate via models as well.
“Using AWR’s software, Multitest is able to accurately and efficiently simulate PCB interfaces prior to
fabrication. This gives our customers the confidence they need before they even receive our hardware,” said Ryan
Satrom, signal integrity engineer at Multitest.
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
