National Instruments is demoing AWR Connected for AMCAD this week at IMS 2015 in Phoenix, Ariz. (Booth No. 2431). This tool provides ready access between the firm’s NI AWR Design Environment V12 and AMCAD Engineering stability analysis (STAN) software.
Stability can be difficult to achieve in microwave circuits with gain (nonlinear behavior), such as amplifiers and oscillators. The AWR Connected wizard can be called upon from within Microwave Office circuit design software to locate and characterize the unwanted oscillations in components like power amplifiers (PAs). This aids RF/microwave engineers in developing networks that improve circuit stability without sacrificing the performance goals of the original circuit design. AWR Connected for AMCAD is now available.
