The NI AWR Design Environment provides a complete software solution for high-frequency circuit and system design and simulation. The AWR software consists of high-frequency electronic design automation (EDA) tools such as Visual System Simulator for system design, Microwave Office/Analog Office for microwave/RF circuit design, and AXIEM and Analyst for electromagnetic analysis.
Microwave Office circuit design software is used for all types of RF and microwave circuits, from integrated microwave assemblies to monolithic microwave integrated circuits. Using the intuitive user interface, you can deliver high-frequency designs to market more quickly. Microwave Office also seamlessly integrates with system design and EM tools within the NI AWR Design Environment for a faster design flow.
Visual System Simulator (VSS) delivers a model-based approach to RF/communications and radar system design. Design the right system architecture from the start and formulate suitable specifications and requirements for each of the underlying components. Typical applications for VSS include component specifications development, algorithm development, link budget analysis, co-simulation with circuit tools, and hardware-in-the-loop simulations.
AXIEM and Analyst offer powerful 3D EM simulation and analysis software tools (planar and full 3D) that integrate seamlessly within the NI AWR Design Environment. Move from circuit concept to full 3D EM characterization/verification with a single mouse click. Typical applications for AXIEM and Analyst include on-chip passive components; RF PCB, module; and packaging interconnect, finite dielectrics (IC packaging/ PCB edges/inhomogeneous boards), hierarchical designs (SOC, SIP), and antennas.
