A new NI AWR Design Environment application
note describes how the original design of a simple coffee-can radar from the Massachusetts Institute
of Technology (MIT) OpenCourseWare (OCW) online course was redesigned and optimized using the system,
circuit and electromagnetic (EM) analysis capabilities of NI AWR software. The redesign was done using
Visual System Simulator™ (VSS) system-level design software and AXIEM and Analyst™ EM simulators such
that the "re-caffeinated" radar system delivers better performance, is less expensive to make and has
a smaller footprint than the original system.
