NI AWR Design Environment
In this two-day class, we look at some of the more advanced and powerful electromagnetic (EM) simulation concepts in Microwave Office (MWO). We will focus on MWO’s 3D simulator, Analyst, and planar simulator, AXIEM. Many of the features and concepts discussed can also be used with the AWR Connected EM flows for HFSS and CST.
This class is intended for experienced users of MWO, who want to increase their understanding of EM simulation issues, and how to more effectively work in MWO’s EM environment. The main purpose of this class is to cover the issues in sufficient depth which were not addressed in previous basic EM classes. Less experienced users of the software should still find the topics of interest and are welcome to attend.
