EL SEGUNDO, Calif. – Feb. 12, 2014 – AWR Corporation, the
innovation leader in high-frequency EDA software, releases a new customer success story that prominently and proudly
features how the AWR Graduate Gift
Initiative played a role in helping Dr. Dominic FitzPatrick found
PoweRFul Microwave, an engineering consultancy
specializing in RF and microwave amplifier design.
Upon graduation from Cardiff University, Cardiff, UK, Dr. FitzPatrick took advantage of AWR’s Graduate Gift Initiative
program, which gifts a one-year complete AWR Design Environment™ software license to graduates in order to help them
jumpstart their careers.
In the year since founding PoweRFul Microwave, Dominic has secured customer design wins that called upon the use
of Microwave Office® nonlinear engine to design power amplifiers in frequency bands from VHF to 20GHz. He has also
used AXIEM® in the design of planar baluns, as well as presented his novel design works at an AWR/NI event in the
AWR's Microwave Office software has been invaluable to me, not only for the nonlinear harmonic balance analysis
