Automation Built on Experience
Design-flow automation connects simulation models, third-party tools, and layout to manufacturing processes, from early concept exploration through engineering signoff.
Focused on all aspects of RF/Microwave design, AWR Design Environment provides the comprehensive platform you need. No matter the challenge, we have targeted solutions and resources to help you resolve them .
Accurately represent signal generation, transmission, phased-arrays, T/R switching, clutter, noise, jamming, and signal processing, to tackle the design challenges for modern radar systems.
Leading manufacturers use Microwave Office circuit design software to accelerate product development of high-frequency electronics. The intuitive interface, innovative design automation, and powerful harmonic-balance circuit simulation ensure greater engineering productivity and accelerated design cycles. RF-aware layout, high-frequency models, design automation, and powerful HB simulator ensure greater engineering productivity and speed up design cycles for today’s most challenging applications
Visual System Simulator™ (VSS) RF/wireless communications and radar system design software supports VSWR-aware modeling of RF and DSP blocks, providing time-domain, frequency-domain, and circuit-envelope analyses. With VSS, Tx/Rx designers are able to develop and optimize system architectures and determine component specifications for best overall performance. Users can simulate system metrics such as BER and EVM with pre-configured and user-defined virtual test benches, as well as identify the source of spurious products and other system impairments.
Analyst™ 3D FEM EM simulation and analysis simulator accelerates high-frequency product development from early physical design characterization through to full 3D EM verification. The advanced solver technology provides fast and accurate analysis of 3D structures/interconnects found in today’s complex, high-frequency electronics.
AXIEM 3D planar method-of-moments (MoM) EM analysis simulator addresses passive structures, transmission lines, large planar antennas, and patch arrays. AXIEM software delivers the accuracy, capacity, and speed designers need to characterize and optimize passive components on RF PCBs, modules, LTCCs, MMICs, RFICs, and antennas.

Version control supports collaboration between multiple designers and maintains a revision history of design data. The latest release adds additional functionality to the version control features for effectively managing group design of complex, multi-function projects across many different technologies.
Run EM analysis on silicon Virtuoso PDK RF circuit designs from within the AWR platform using the EMX Planar 3D Solver. The EMX solver is extremely efficient and accurate at solving silicon IC structures and is widely supported by foundries. New Virtuoso PDKs enabled for Microwave Office software can include foundry-approved EMX passive components.
This release introduces a new hybrid optimizer method combining the best performance of several optimizers to produce a top-performing algorithm on a very wide range of problems.
New data file utilities simplify the exporting/importing of waveform data for applications such as DPD, DUT evaluation, and communications receiver testing, supporting more efficient capture of waveforms from test hardware and other applications into AWR Visual System Simulator (VSS) communications and radar systems design software. To facilitate signal demodulation in VSS software, transmitter-generated signal properties blocks can save and re-apply propagated properties from and to any signal in VSS software.
Microwave Office software now supports the easy setup of Spectre RF Option simulation in the AWR Design Environment platform with a new Circuit Options dialog box Spectre tab for embedded Spectre netlists in an AWR project. A new utility script allows users to import Spectre netlist blocks, creating schematic symbols that can be simulated with an analysis using a VSS testbench or embedded into an AWR project (network) for RFIC/module co-design.
The Component Synthesis Wizard now supports the synthesis of several new types of passive microwave structures to be implemented in microstrip transmission line structures. The Mixer and Multiplier Synthesis Wizard is now available to all users developing microwave frequency conversion devices (requires nonlinear simulation license).
AWR Design Environment is built to support your RF/Microwave designs across multiple fabrics. From on chip RF structures to full RF board solution we have the technology you need to match your needs.
