NI AWR Design Environment
AWR Connected™ – CapeSym seamlessly integrates high-frequency design software from AWR with CapeSym's SYMMIC™ thermal FEM analysis software to provide a co-simulation software-to-software electrical/thermal MMIC design environment.
High-power RF components not only produce high power—they also generate heat. This makes it important to not only understand the electrical performance of the end device but also the impact of its thermal profile. AWR Connected for SYMMIC is a unidirectional interface flow developed especially for high power monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC) designers to enable them to easily take AWR’s Microwave Office high-frequency circuit designs into CapeSym’s SYMMIC software package for thermal analysis. Together, AWR & CapeSym provide high power RF designers with the ability to obtain optimal electrical performance with proper consideration given to thermal operating properties as well. This results more robust and reliable next-generation RF and power systems.
