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...

ADS has no demo - RF Cafe Forums

RF Cafe Forums closed its virtual doors in 2012 mainly due to other social media platforms dominating public commenting venues. RF Cafe Forums began sometime around August of 2003 and was quite well-attended for many years. By 2010, Facebook and Twitter were overwhelmingly dominating online personal interaction, and RF Cafe Forums activity dropped off precipitously. If the folks at phpBB would release a version with integrated sign-in from the major social media platforms, I would resurrect the RF Cafe Forums, but until then it is probably not worth the effort. Regardless, there are still lots of great posts in the archive that ware worth looking at.

Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

Unfortunately, and for what ever reason, ADS does not offer a deomo like Ansoft, Eagleware, and Microwave office. Ansoft has a fairly robust student version which you can download for free. Microwave office and Eagleware offer 30 day trials for their full version software. ADS "may" bring in a copy for you to evaluate, but unless your a potential customer or you are already with a company in which Agilent wants to get there foot in the door, it is doubtful.

Hello,

Well with all the respect to all of the software tools you mentioned, you can't compare the performance of ADS to those. Therefore, Agilent keeps themselves the "right" of not distributing a demo to customers, as they are and were prominent in the EDA domain

You are quite right about the dominance of ADS.
