SEGUNDO, CA – Aug. 30, 2010 - AWR Corporation, the innovation leader in high-frequency EDA, today announced the
commercial release of its 2010 Visual System Simulator™ (VSS) software. The release offers new capabilities that
increase productivity for RF system designers; including time delay neural network (TDNN™) advanced amplifier
behavioral models for capturing memory effects and measurement data interchange format (MDIF) model support, as
well as a new phased array element for radar design engineers. Additionally, enhancements have been made to the
VSS RFA™ architect tool plus new communication models and signal processing blocks have been added.
Key Features in VSS 2010:
TDNN* ( time delay neural network) based models:
New circuit-based nonlinear behavioral model for VSS that can capture memory effects in power amplifiers
Support for turbo codes used in 3G/4G standards
cdma2000, IS856, WiMAX, and LTE
Library/components that can be used for decoding of custom turbo codes
*TDNN is available for select, pre-qualified customers only at this time.
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
