Electronic-design-automation (EDA) software innovator Applied Wave Research (AWR) is marking its 10th anniversary of service to the high-frequency industry this December. The firm began servicing its first customer on December 10th, 1997 with one seat of software. Since then, the company's customer base has grown every year, with over 20,000 active users in 2007.

The company attributes its consistent growth and the expansion of its customer base not only to its founding principles of openness and interoperability, but also to its commitment to innovate new technologies in order to help customers meet the growing challenges of increasingly complex RF and microwave design. Since 1997, the company has continually strengthened its flagship product, Microwave Office(R) design suite, with exciting new technologies targeted at increasing the productivity of its customers. In the past 12 months alone, AWR has introduced three groundbreaking new technologies, the ACET, RFAT, and AXIEMT solutions, which enable faster, more streamlined product development.

According to the company's Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Dane Collins, "It is extremely satisfying that throughout our 10 years of growth and innovation, we've seen our customer base go global and the use of our products expand substantially. Personally, the most rewarding highlight of our journey over the past decade is the customer loyalty we've earned. That's really why we are celebrating this anniversary. We appreciate their confidence in our company and our software."
