AWR Corp. has unleashed its AWR 2011 product portfolio that includes the Microwave Office, Visual System Simulator, AXIEM and Analog Office. The solutions claim to offer new functionality and enhanced capabilities that decrease user wait times and increase designer productivity for high-frequency MMIC, MIC, RFIC, RF PCB and modules.

The Microwave Office and Analog Office 2011 design suites encompass all the tools essential for high-frequency IC (MMIC/RFIC), PCB and module design, stated the company. These include linear circuit simulators, nonlinear circuit simulators, electromagnetic (EM) analysis tools, schematic and layout, statistical design capabilities, and parametric cell libraries with built-in design-rule check (DRC).

Features specific to the 2011 release include floating window support for multiple monitor displays, group design/project import, simulation state management of datasets, iMatch impedance matching module, RF aware short checker, and yield analysis and optimizers.

VSS 2011 software for the design of complex communications systems supports a diverse set of standards including LTE, WiMAX/802.16x, GSM/EDGE, WLAN/802.11x and more. New features added to VSS 2011 include radar library, circuit envelope simulation, RF Budget (RFB) spreadsheet wizard, and nonlinear co-simulation and co-simulation with National Instrument's LabVIEW.

As for AXIEM, AWR's 3D full-wave planar electromagnetic simulator, new features in the 2011 release include asynchronous EM simulation, simulation state management of datasets, rule-based shape modifiers, yield analysis, and user-defined parameterized models and X-models.

AWR 2011 (AWRDE 10) is available and can be downloaded at AWR's online software download page.
