AWR Corporation Press Release - November 2011

AWR E-News - November 2011
Rainy England Doesn't Dampen EuMW 2011!

I recently attended EuMW 2011 in Manchester. In spite of the typical English weather, the EuMW 2011 proved to be another exciting exhibition for AWR. Our booth was busy as we were showcasing AWR 2011 and our newest announcement, AWR Connected™ for Antenna Magus. (View the related Microwave Journal Video Interview). In addition, we also highlighted an Infineon PA demonstration with NI hardware, this demo was Antenna Magus - Video Interviewa real crowd catcher! If you missed this demo check it out now. Lastly, AWR also proudly sponsored the very first "MicroApps" during EuMW. Off to a good start, we plan to do it again next year as well. If you missed out, apply for your free MicroApps presentation CD today.

AWR Connected for Antenna Magus

AWR.TV Antenna MagusAWR and Magus recently announced joint marketing plans. With AWR Connected for Antenna Magus, validated, parametric models of initial antenna designs are seamlessly exported into AWR's Microwave Office™ / AXIEM® software for further characterization, including tuning and optimization.

Using LabVIEW with AWR to Design Complex Circuits for Wireless Applications

Today's wireless networks require that the performance of amplifiers and other circuits be evaluated from baseband through RF and microwave frequencies using integrated EDA tools. These tools must combine digital baseband signal processing and high-frequency design software HiL Application Notewith the ability to stimulate circuits with hardware-based and "virtual" test equipment using "real-world" (standards-based) waveforms.

This application note describes the benefits of this approach using AWR's Microwave Office and Visual System Simulator™ (VSS) high-frequency design software alongside National Instruments' LabVIEW signal processing software and virtual instruments for meeting this challenge.

High-Speed Serial Backplane -
SERDES Design Example

Having high-frequency design tools resident on a Vector Network Analyzer (VNA) provides a streamlined work flow that eliminates the time required to transfer measured data to a simulator SERDES Application Noterunning on a separate PC or workstation. This is one of the unique advantages provided by AWR Connected for Anritsu VectorStar, in which AWR's Microwave Office software is resident in the Anritsu VectorStar VNA.

This application note demonstrates these advantages in the design of a high-speed serial backplane, such as allowing good channel design to be achieved at early development stages and validating the design as it grows in complexity throughout the design process.

About RF Cafe

Kirt Blattenberger - RF Cafe Webmaster

1996 - 2024


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...
