Applied Wave Research (AWR) - Press Release 10-8-2007
AWR and NXP Release LDMOS Simulation Library – Featuring NXP Sixth-Generation
Latest NXP large signal models now available in Microwave Office
2007 design suite
EL SEGUNDO, Calif. and Eindhoven,
The Netherlands — 8 October 2007 — Applied Wave Research, Inc.
(AWR®) today announced the completion and release of a Microwave Office®
2007 design software simulation library that features NXP Semiconductor’s
sixth-generation laterally-diffused metal oxide semiconductor (LDMOS)
devices. The simulation library provides power amplifier (PA) and base
station design engineers, as well as designers of worldwide interoperability
for microwave access (WiMAX) and wireless broadcasting equipment with
AWR- and NXP-proven large signal circuit simulation models.
“In order to meet the demanding power efficiency and linearity specifications
of modern communication systems, the PA design engineer requires accurate
device models and fast and efficient simulation tools,” said Ronald
Wilting, international product marketing manager at NXP Semiconductor.
“NXP has met the technical challenge to develop such models for their
silicon RF LDMOS technology and now designers using AWR’s Microwave
Office software benefit by also being able to examine the performance
of these packaged NXP devices as part of their design flow. This results
in better PA design topologies,
“NXP is a global leader of semiconductor
solutions and its silicon RF LDMOS technology delivers unprecedented
performance,” said Chris Paris, AWR director of European operations.
“We are pleased to work with them in the development of this simulation
library. The combination of the Microwave Office design platform with
NXP’s LDMOS large signal device model library results in an even higher
quality design solution that greatly benefits the customers of both
Pricing and Availability
device models are available now and contain, for the first time, LDMOS
devices from the WiMAX product portfolio. For active, licensed customers
of AWR’s Microwave Office, the NXP LDMOS process technology simulation
library is free. The library can be obtained by contacting NXP directly

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 World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at
the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps
while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got
Mail" when a new message arrived...
