Design software innovator AWR will be awarding a free, fully functional, one-year personal term license for its Microwave Office and Visual System Simulator (VSS) software suites to the individual or team winning the Sixth High Efficiency Student Power Amplifier Competition this month during the 2010 International Microwave Symposium (IMS) in Anaheim, CA. The competition is open to all registered students and graduate students. It requires competitors to design, construct, and measure the performance of a high-efficiency power amplifier between 1 and 20 GHz and at least 5 W output power. According to Sherry Hess, Vice President of Marketing at AWR, "AWR is committed to helping engineering students gain valuable hands-on experience with software design tools in preparation for entering the work world." The winning design will be the one with the highest power-added efficiency.
