RF Verification flow

AWR and Zuken announce RF verification flow for PCB design

SANTA CLARA, Calif., DESIGNCON 2013— AWR Corporation, the innovation leader in high-frequency EDA software, together with Zuken, a leading provider of electrical and electronic engineering software solutions, today announce AWR Connected™ for Zuken. This RF printed circuit board (PCB) verification flow simplifies the PCB design process and therefore shortens design cycles by enabling users to quickly and easily simulate and verify embedded RF functionality. AWR Connected for Zuken provides a pathway from Zuken’s CR-8000 Design Force PCB design software into AWR’s Microwave Office® high-frequency simulation software.

The new interface enables an intelligent, collaborative design flow for RF design and verification on the PCB. Users now have flexibility to bring in an entire design, or select specific RF signals and other design structures to conduct electromagnetic analysis. This saves time and effort for users who work with non-intelligent conductive data formats by eliminating the need to remodel before simulating.

awr-logo-900-300x102The solution works by extracting user-specified data from the Zuken platform, generating a 3Di file output, and then importing the 3Di data into Microwave Office for further electromagnetic (EM) simulation with any one of AWR’s solutions: ACE™ automated circuit extraction, AXIEM® 3D planar EM analysis, or Analyst™ 3D finite element method (FEM) EM analysis.
