RF/Microwave Design Software
Cadence AWR Design Environment, Version 15
Cadence® AWR® Microwave Office® circuit design software is used by leading manufacturers to accelerate product development of high-frequency electronics. RF-aware layout, high-frequency models, and a powerful harmonic-balance (HB) simulator ensure accurate and fast simulation results for first-pass success. The intuitive interface, innovative design automation, and design-assist features promote optimum engineering productivity and accelerate design cycles for today's most challenging wireless applications.
Best-in-class harmonic balance engine provides fast and rigorous convergence of highly nonlinear networks, addressing circuits with large transistor counts and/or harmonic content
Design automation, an intuitive interface, and scripting/customization supports all phases of product development in less time
Co-simulation with system and electromagnetic simulators provides in-situ parasitic extraction, design verification, and standards-compliant communication testbenches
Help designers meet their amplifier bandwidth, efficiency, and linearity goals with advanced design automation and robust HB simulation for fast and accurate nonlinear analysis of RF/microwave circuits. Highly accurate semiconductor device/circuit element models and features such as load-pull analysis and impedance matching network synthesis (optional) allow designers to optimize performance and quickly bring products to market.
Synthesis wizards (optional) including the iFilter™ filter design utility address early filter development, from distributed filters to more complex multiplexed, high-power, and high-Q cavity filters. The comprehensive distributed transmission line models and vendor component libraries along with EM verification allow passive component designers to meet challenging size, cost, and time-to-market goals.
Provides designers of mixers and frequency converters commonly found in superheterodyne receivers with efficient multi-tone, frequency-domain analysis. The superior HB circuit simulation engine offers fast, accurate and robust convergence to account for the spurious output tones resulting from device non-linearities and leakage.
