AWR Press Release - May 4, 2009

AWR® Adds TriQuint Semiconductor Microwave Devices
to Microwave Office® Software

Click to visit the Applied Wave Research websiteEl Segundo, Calif. — May 4, 2009 — AWR, the innovation leader in high-frequency electronic design automation (EDA), today announced that users of AWR's Microwave Office design software now have access to XML library data for a broad array of microwave amplifiers from TriQuint Semiconductor, Inc.’s (NASDAQ: TQNT) San Jose design center (formerly WJ Communications). The devices include packaged gain-blocks, field effect transistors (FETs), and heterojunction bipolar transistor (HBT) amplifiers.

The library provides measurement-based models and footprints used for printed circuit board (PCB) and module layouts. It is available to users of AWR's Microwave Office software through the XML library link
accessible from the software. While the majority of the library is targeted for small signal simulation, many nonlinear models are available for the AP60x Series high-voltage HBT amplifiers. The data sheet for each TriQuint device can be viewed by clicking the "Vendor Help" button from within the Microwave Office parameter dialog box for the device, which connects the user directly to TriQuint's website.

“Integrating TriQuint’s component models into the Microwave Office XML libraries will enable RF engineers to design their end solutions in an easier and faster manner," said Tuan Nguyen, product marketing manager for TriQuint's Network Business Unit. “AWR’s simulation software helps RF design and applications engineers quickly generate circuit designs while meeting performance and schedule requirements.”

The Microwave Office XML parts allow designers to incorporate commercially-available devices directly into their designs by providing a schematic symbol and simulation model as well as by relating the data to a part number and package footprint suitable for a production layout and assembly drawing. XML components have added value because the models themselves are created and provided by TriQuint Semiconductor, which ensures that the model is accurate and represents TriQuint’s concept of how the part should function.

These new XML parts increase both the volume and quality of AWR’s rapidly-growing vendor parts. The library is available from the AWR website (www.awrcorp.com), and other vendors can add and modify parts within AWR's vendor program as TriQuint has done. XML parts can be targeted for native Microwave Office circuit simulation, enabling designers to take advantage of AWR’s industry-leading linear and nonlinear frequency-domain simulation, including APLAC® and HSPICE®, as well as system simulation using Visual System Simulator™(VSS) software.


The XML library of TriQuint microwave devices is available now. AWR software users receive new XML devices automatically and seamlessly through the software’s “Element Browser.”

Kirt Blattenberger,


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...
