NORWOOD, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI) today announced the release of a new version of its popular ADIsimRF™ design tool.
ADI’s ADIsimRF design tool is the software accompaniment to ADI’s complete portfolio of RF-to-digital functional
blocks, allowing engineers to model RF signal chains using devices from across ADI’s RF IC and data converter
portfolio. ADIsimRF Version 1.6 adds support for 29 new RF ICs and data converters as well as functional
enhancements. The ADIsimRF design tool provides calculations for the most important parameters within an RF signal
chain, including cascaded gain, noise figure, IP3, P1dB, and total power consumption. The ADIsimRF tool also
contains embedded data from many of ADI’s RF ICs and data converters, which designers can easily access using
pull-down menus. Device tables assist in component selection.
ADIsimRF Version 1.6 Key Features:
RF IC Portfolio Covers Entire RF Signal Chain Using a unique combination of design skills, systems understanding
and process technologies, Analog Devices RF ICs and world-leading data converters cover the entire RF signal chain
and include industry-leading high-performance discrete RF function blocks as well as highly-integrated
multi-functional single-chip RF solutions. These products are also supported by a wide range of free design tools,
evaluation boards and other design resources to ease the development of RF systems. For more information, visit:
- Support for ADI’s newest high-performance RF ICs and data converters
- Additional input fields and system level calculations such as input Rx sensitivity; integrated output noise
floor in dBm and input field for minimum SNR (signal-to-noise ratio) for demodulation
- Aspect ratio support of 1024 x 600 pixels to support lower resolution PC displays such as netbooks
- File saving and loading support for European numerical formats
