NI AWR Design Environment
TestWave™ software integrates test and measurement (T&M) equipment with the NI AWR Design Environment software platform, inclusive of Visual System Simulator™ (VSS) for communication systems design and Microwave Office for RF/microwave circuit design.
Accessing these two previously disjointed development tasks from the same software environment saves time. Measurements made with instruments such as modulation analyzers, vector signal analyzers (VSA), and vector network analyzers (VNA) can be integrated directly into the simulation and the design can be modified to enhance its performance.
TestWave supports links to test and measurement equipment from Agilent, Anritsu, TeK and Rohde & Schwarz, to name a few, via RS-232, GPIB, or LAN. An example list of supported T&M instruments includes:
