RFP: Radio Frequency Planning Wizard

Visual System Simulator's Frequency Planning Utility

AWR’s frequency planning wizard, RFP™, allows engineers to effortlessly and efficiently determine spurious free bandwidths. It is an essential utility that works with the Visual System Simulator™ (VSS) communications system design environment for the design of radio communications systems, cellular, or military radio links.

RFP gives engineers a greater insight into unwanted signals or spurs generated in a specified bandwidth. RFP is not limited to just analyzing spurs generated by a lineup of mixers. The RF lineup can consist of common components found in radio communication links. The RFP RF link can consist of parts such as amplifiers, mixers, and filters, and can be built up from a selection of commercially available parts or behavioral models.
