RF/microwave electronic design automation (EDA) software provider NI (formerly AWR Corp) of El Segundo, CA, USA says that V14 of its Design Environment platform has been released and is available to download for current customers and evaluators.

The latest release includes new features, add-on modules and enhancements to the NI AWR Design Environment software suite of products, including Microwave Office/Analog Office circuit design software, Visual System Simulator (VSS) system design software and AXIEM planar and Analyst 3D finite-element method (FEM) electromagnetic (EM) simulators.

In particular, the V14 release focuses on streamlining and expediting all stages of design — from initial starts using powerful network synthesis to circuit, system and EM simulation technology improvements for performance analysis, optimization and verification. Along with enhancements to design flow automation, the release can accelerate RF/microwave designs from concept to product.

Highlights include:

Design Environment, Layout and Automation

  • advanced report/measurement management
  • improved report generation for power amplifiers (PAs)
  • expanded PCB import wizard automates layout edit/capture
  • enhanced iNet intelligent net routing and layout manager

System Simulation and Models/Libraries

  • phased-array generation wizard (add-on module)
  • new spatial channel models
  • system bus support

Circuit Simulation and Models/Libraries

  • new network synthesis for impedance matching (add-on module)
  • new tuner interface for large-scale parametric design
  • loop gain stability analysis

EM Simulation and Modeling

  • port points for component/EM integration
  • 3D internal wave ports
  • support for conformal structures such as antennas.

NI AWR Design Environment V14 is available now. Existing customers may download the V14 release at any time by logging into the customer portal download site.
