Nonlinear Behavioral Modeling Support Click to visit the Applied Wave Research website

EL SEGUNDO, CA – Aug. 2, 2010 - AWR Corporation, the innovation leader in high-frequency EDA, announced today the commercial release/availability of its 2010 Microwave Office® (MWO) design suite. The 2010 release offers new functionality and tools to increase productivity for high-frequency monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC), MIC, RF printed circuit board (PCB) and module designers. Key new features include a range of support for nonlinear behavioral modeling, improved speed in AWR’s multi-rate harmonic balance (MRHB™) technology for the design of complex circuits, iFilter™ synthesis for lumped and distributed filters, and AWR Connected™ for Cadence® Allegro® for import of Cadence PCB layouts into MWO for further analysis and electromagnetic simulation.

Highlights of Microwave Office 2010:
  • Nonlinear behavioral modeling support for Agilent's X-parameters®, Mesuro's Cardiff model, and more
  • MRHB improvements for even faster simulation times
  • Linear stability analysis including normalized determinant function and stability envelope measurement
  • Connectivity tracer for identifying nets and locating shorts and opens visually
  • iFilter (optional) filter synthesis for lumped and distributed filters
  • AWR Connected for Cadence Allegro (optional) for importing Cadence PCB layouts for high-frequency circuit and EM analysis
