Signal Integrity

NI AWR Software for Signal Integrity

High-frequency design tools and electromagnetic (EM) simulation are essential when designing analog and digital circuits and subsystems operating at gigabit-per-second (GBPS) data rates.

Microwave Office® for Signal Integrity solution incorporates key elements of the Microwave Office design suite along with the HSPICE® simulator from Synopsys in order to provide you with the tools you need to tackle today’s high-data-rate designs. As such, NI AWR software for Signal Integrity can concurrently manage multiple stack-ups or technology files representing integrated circuits (ICs), their packages, the printed circuit board (PCB), and all associated die-to-board electrical models. This gives you much more flexibility for verification.
