AWR Press Release - December 14, 2009
AWR Analog Office® Version 2009 Delivers New Enhancements for High-Frequency IC Design
SEGUNDO, CA — Dec. 14, 2009 — AWR, the innovation leader in high-frequency electronic design automation
(EDA), today announced Version 2009 of its Analog Office high-frequency analog and RFIC design software. This
latest release includes AWR’s patent-pending multi-rate harmonic balance (MRHB™) technology, which dramatically
increases the speed and reduces the computer memory required to perform steady-state analysis of complex
multi-tone designs such as those found in receivers and transmitters with multiple stages of upconversion and
Analog Office Version 2009 also offers AWR’s AXIEM™ 3D planar EM technology, which now
supports 64-bit operating systems, multi-core PCs and shape pre-processing algorithms that decrease solution time
for complex geometries.
Additional features in Analog Office Version 2009 include:
• Automated Circuit Extraction (ACE): Improved extraction flow using frequency-domain interconnect
technology along with more traditional RLCK extraction.
• Extract Flow with AXIEM: For very-high-frequency
designs, the same layout can be effortlessly
extracted to AXIEM software for full-wave 3D planar
• DRC/LVS: PowerDRC/LVS technology provides fast, accurate, affordable
solutions for analog and mixed signal design and is now integrated into Analog Office
an add-on module.
• OpenAccess: As a founding member of the Interoperable PDK Library (IPL)
alliance, AWR supports
open access (OA) process design kits (PDKs) and layout views that enable an
flow among EDA vendors.
• Sapphicon PDKs: Comprehensive PDKs are now available for
Sapphicon Semiconductor’s advanced
0.25-µm RF complementary metal oxide semiconductor (RF CMOS)
Version 2009 of Analog Office software is part of the AWR Design
Environment (AWRDE™), which is now shipping to supported customers. For more information about Analog Office
software, please visit www.awrcorp.com.

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...
