NI AWR Design Environment V12 now available

NI (formerly AWR Corp) of El Segundo, CA, USA has announced availability of the first major release in 2015 of NI AWR Design Environment for designers of monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs), radio-frequency printed-circuit boards (RF PCBs), and modules. V12 was previewed initially at the 2015 IEEE MTT-S International Microwave Symposium (IMS) in Phoenix, Arizona, in May, yieldng feedback from early-access customers.

This latest release has new load-pull and antenna- and radar-specific features, as well as ease-of-use improvements, speed enhancements and third-party integration flows for improved stability analysis and design rule checking/layout versus schematic.

Select highlights of V12 NI AWR Design Environment include:

Microwave Office/Analog Office (for microwave/RF circuit design) –

  • View measured data and design matching networks using swept load-pull files;
  • APLAC tuning and optimization speed enhancements;
  • Improved simulation control;
  • Schematic editing, layout viewing and layout editing improvements.

Analyst and AXIEM (for electromagnetic analysis) –

  • Easier 3D EM setup and an improved 3D editor experience; geometry cleanup and standard for the exchange of product model data (STEP) import for Analyst;
  • Anisotropic dielectric materials support for AXIEM;
  • Faster and more accurate simulation results due to threading, frequency sweep algorithm improvements, meshing options/refinement enhancements and a remote simulation option; Visualization of the impact of circuits on antenna patterns.

Visual System Simulator (VSS) for system design ­–

  • An enhanced phased-array block and simplified Microwave Office consistent VSS sources;
  • Bidirectional blocks for more readily managing both transmit and receive systems;
  • RF models auto-configuration option for phased-array block, WLAN 802.11ac library, enhanced radar library and more.

V12 NI AWR Design Environment is availability now.
