Enhancements to capacity and speed to support 64-bit mode on 64-bit operating systems headline National Instruments’ V11 release of its AWR Design Environment. Among other features are a new gamma probe model, layout improvements (specifically shape pre-processing, or SPP), additional testbench and example products, and an improved 3D EM editor for the creation of arbitrary 3D structures. Expanded graphic options include stepped colors on swept traces and multi-selection of traces for edit. Automatic ports technology simplifies the extraction flow, and support is now included for AFS band limiting. Datasets also make it possible to save and store results from simulation runs within the project.
