RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...

NI (formerly AWR Corporation) announces that undergraduate students at the University of Peradeniya (PDN) in Sri Lanka designed a unique multistage coupler using NI AWR Design Environment™ circuit design software, specifically Microwave Office. The students designed and simulated a unique wideband coupler that improves directivity by increasing the number of stages of the coupled line coupler, resulting in improved bandwidth performance, directivity and phase compensation.
“I use NI AWR software extensively in the undergraduate projects I supervise,” said Dr. Aruna Gunawardena, senior lecturer at PDN. “In particular, the wideband asymmetric coupler project was submitted as a paper at the IEEE International Conference on Industrial and Information Systems in December 2014 and won the second best paper award.”
